AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Russia is ready to dramatically cut its nuclear stockpiles in a new arms pact with the United States if Washington meets Russia’s concerns over missile defense, President Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday.
“We are ready to reduce by several times the number of nuclear delivery vehicles compared with the START-1 pact,” he told a news conference in Amsterdam.
“As far as warheads are concerned, their numbers should be lower than envisaged by the Moscow 2002 pact,” he added.
