The US has urged Russia to mutually reduce nuclear weapons

The US has urged Russia to join talks on further bilateral reduction of nuclear arsenals. The corresponding statement was made by the U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry, reports «Voice of America».

«We expect that the United States and Russia by February 5, 2018 will be released on the contractual limits, and urge Russia to join talks on further reducing our nuclear arsenals. I share the firm belief of President Obama that the two countries, which opened the era of nuclear weapons, bear special responsibility to lead the world out of this era», he said.

According to Secretary of state, a new contract has become even more important now than when it came into force five years ago, as it allows today to maintain the level of trust and allows U.S. inspectors have unprecedented access to Russian nuclear facilities.

Earlier, General Philip Breedlove stated that Russia is increasing its nuclear rhetoric, trying to bring the West out of balance. He stressed the concern of the Alliance by Russian threats to deploy nuclear weapons in Crimea.
