Russia says nuclear treaty talks to start in weeks
MOSCOW -- The Interfax news agency quotes Russia's deputy foreign minister as saying consultations with Washington on a new treaty to limit the nuclear threat will begin in the next few weeks.
Saturday's report quotes Sergei Rybakov as saying the talks should commence "before the end of April."
The current Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty expires Dec. 5.
Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama, during their first meeting in London earlier this week, set a nominal July deadline for the substitute treaty. That date would coincide with Obama's first presidential visit to Russia.
Russia and the U.S. hold the world's largest nuclear arsenals.
The two leaders vowed to jointly pursue nuclear threats emanating from Iran, North Korea and al-Qaida militants in Pakistan.
