Russia, U.S. make progress on nuclear arms deal: Lavrov
Russia and the United States have made progress on reaching a new deal to cut nuclear weapons, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying on Thursday by local news agencies, Reuters reported.
Lavrov said negotiators would report progress on finding a replacement to the START-1 nuclear weapons treaty to the presidents of both countries when they meet on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh later this month.
"We will have something to report by Pittsburgh," Lavrov was quoted as saying. Lavrov said he was confident that a replacement to the START treaty would be found before it expires in December.
