US President Donald Trump believes that the situation around negotiations with Russia on nuclear disarmament is the largest international problem.
“We are now working with Russia on an agreement on nuclear weapons because Russia wants it,” the American leader said during a conversation with radio host Hugh Hewitt, stressing that the Russian side wants it very much. Trump noted that he does not think Russia will wait.
In November 2019, the head of the White House announced that the United States would like to sign a new arms control agreement with Russia, China, and possibly several other countries. When asked about his desire to extend the Treaty on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START, START-3), Trump did not answer.
START Treaty was concluded by Russia and the United States in 2010. It is valid for 10 years (until February 5, 2021), unless replaced by a new agreement before that date.
