Russia, US to resume arms talks

Russia: Geneva will host in early September the 5th round of talks between Russia and the United States on a deal to cut their nuclear weapons and finalise a successor to the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START 1).

A Russian Foreign Ministry source said the September negotiations were agreed upon at the July 6 meeting between Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and US President Barack Obama.

The sides arranged to hold the next round of talks at the end of August - start of September in Geneva, the source said.

The START successor treaty intends to cut the number of deployed nuclear warheads on each side to 1,500-1,675 from levels above 2,200. The 1991 deal expires on Dec. 5, so Moscow and Washington are expecting to replace it with a 10-year agreement. Russia, however, has voiced disagreement with the United States plans to deploy an anti-missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic.
