How can the 5 nuclear weapon states (#NWS) collaborate to mitigate #NuclearRisk? @zhaot2005 lays out 4 distinct proposals & argues that the NWS should expand existing dialogues & renew robust discourses among their nuclear policy communities. carnegietsinghua.org/2020/05/22/wha…

My comments in @thehill: “Getting China’s nuclear forces under control is a worthy goal, and sustained efforts are required to do that — but if New START goes the way of the INF and #OpenSkies Treaties, the possibility of a bigger deal goes with it.” thehill.com/policy/defense…

What a week we've had when it comes to nuclear #armscontrol. 1/ On Thursday, US announces (long-expected) withdrawal from the #OpenSkiesTreaty, overwhelmingly against the wishes of Europe. theguardian.com/us-news/2020/m…| #SaveOpenSkies #KeepFlying

Some argue that RU gets more out of the #OpenSkiesTreaty than the US. This is wrong. 1. Since 2002 the US did 181 flights over RU. RU did 77 over the US. 2. US receives data from all flights over RU (465). 3. RU is less transparent than US. OST helps not to expose classified data

Losing Open Skies is a major blow to international arms control efforts. One more critical line of communication with Russia closed. One less opportunity to prevent disaster before it happens. They will come for New START next, opening the floodgates to a new nuclear arms race.

As @John_Hudson @PaulSonne report we have profound concerns abt talk abt resuming nuclear testing. As I said in the story: “It would be an invitation for other nuclear-armed countries to follow suit ... the starting gun to an unprecedented arms race." 1/ twitter.com/John_Hudson/st…
