U.S. and Russia Resume Nuclear Arms Talks

They are looking to negotiate a START replacement.

A round of nuclear arms control talks began between the U.S. and Russia in Finland’s capital, Helsinki, on Monday. The discussions on strategic stability and nuclear weapons began in Vienna over the summer.

The goal of the talks is to produce a new agreement to replace the New START Treaty that will expire in February—the last remaining pact constraining the arsenals of the world’s two major nuclear powers.

U.S. Ambassador Marshall Billingslea and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov are the lead representatives in the talks.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Ambassador Billingslea and the Russian representative as they work to develop a new agreement over the containment of nuclear weapons.
  • With thanksgiving for the constraint shown by the world’s nuclear powers, including rogue nations like North Korea and Iran.
  • For the State Department as U.S. diplomats endeavor to strengthen relationships and build global peace.
