On Monday, June 22 Russia and the United States will resume consultations on strategic stability in Vienna. The meeting will be crucial for preserving and strengthening nuclear arms control. The delegations, headed by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov and U.S. Special Representative for Arms Control Billingslea, will discuss how to preserve the last remaining nuclear arms control accord, the New START treaty, which could expire in February 2021.
What are the prospects of New START extension? How can we avert the risk of a new nuclear arms race? How and when can Moscow and Washington bring China into nuclear arms control?
Three internationally renowned experts and members of the Deep Cuts Commission will address these and further questions in this Zoom briefing and Q&A.
Discussants are Lynn Rusten, Andrey Baklitskiy, and Gö tz Neuneck. Moderated by Oliver Meier.
