Rus­sia, U.S. hold talks about nu­clear pact, Putin says

The Signal - - USA TODAY -

Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin said Moscow is in ne­go­ti­a­tions with Wash­ing­ton on a nu­clear arms pact.

Putin said U.S. plans to re-equip some of its nu­clear-ca­pa­ble air­craft and sub­marines to carry con­ven­tional weapons have drawn Rus­sian con­cerns. He noted Thursday that al­though the U.S. plans don’t con­tra­dict the 2010 U.S.-Rus­sian New START nu­clear arms re­duc­tion treaty, Moscow is en­ti­tled to mon­i­tor the mod­i­fi­ca­tions.
