Russia and the United States have started expert-level work on the extension of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Monday.
Also on Monday, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev and U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan held a phone conversation to discuss the extension of the New START and Russian-U.S. cooperation in the field of security.
Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said last week that the Kremlin welcomes the U.S. proposal on a full five-year extension of the New START, but it is significant to take each other's concerns into consideration.
