Russia puzzled by Biden proposal to replace nuclear arms treaty

On Monday, a Russian foreign ministry official voiced surprise at US President Joe Biden’s suggestion to negotiate a new nuclear weapons limitation framework to replace the New START Treaty, which expires in 2026.

In a statement issued on Monday, Biden stated that his administration is willing to “expeditiously” establish a new framework, but that Russia must demonstrate that it is ready to begin cooperation on nuclear weapons control with the US.
