EUA y Rusia acuerdan extender el tratado de control de armas nucleares Nuevo START

January 27, 2021 - Estados Unidos y Rusia han “acordado en principio” extender por cinco
años el tratado de control de armamento nuclear Nuevo START, luego de una conversación telefónica entre el presidente estadounidense Joe Biden y el presidente ruso Vladimir Putin.

Russian lawmakers on Wednesday quickly approved the extension of the last remaining treaty limiting the U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear arsenals, a fast-track action that comes just days before it’s due to expire, AP said.

The pact’s extension doesn’t require congressional approval in the U.S., but Russian lawmakers must ratify the move and Putin has to sign the relevant bill into law.

New START expires on February 5. After taking office last week, Biden proposed extending the treaty for five years, and the Kremlin quickly welcomed the offer.

The treaty, signed in 2010 by President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, limits each country to no more than 1,550 nuclear warheads on 700 deployed launchers.
