2002 Moscow Treaty: Marking a New Strategic Relationship between the United States and Russia   [open pdf - 141KB]

"On 6 March 2003, the Senate unanimously consented to ratify the 2002 United States-Russia arms reduction treaty (Moscow Treaty), marking a new era in relations between the two states. The Moscow Treaty represents a continuation of the United States and Russia's long-standing process to regulate, reduce, and increase transparency concerning the nuclear-capable forces of each country. At the same time, it represents a departure from the past, because it reflects the fact that Russia is not the Soviet Union, and that our mutual relationship is no longer adversarial. Thus, the Moscow Treaty provides deep reductions in strategic nuclear warheads, but in a much more flexible manner and without the extensive verification and implementation provisions that we relied upon for the INF and START Treaties."
