Russia expects to use the five-year term by which New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) will be extended to launch in-depth talks with the US on the future of arms control, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters on Wednesday, TASS reports.
"Basically, the treaty will be extended by five years without preconditions. We expect to use this time for launching in-depth talks with the US on the future of arms control with the goal of developing a new security equation, which would cover all factors in preserving international security and strategic stability," Ryabkov said.
