US paving way for ‘full-scale arms race’ by staying silent on Russia’s New START proposals – Putin

Putin spoke about the imminent danger of a new unhindered arms race during a joint interview with RT Arabic, UAE-based Sky News Arabia, and Saudi Arabia’s Al-Arabiya broadcasters.

"The New START [Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty] is actually the only agreement that we have to prevent us from falling back into a full-scale arms race. It serves to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms, that is to limit the entire range of strategic weapons, the entire strategic triad: land-, sea- and air-based combat inter-continental ballistic missile launchers."

“This treaty expires in 2021. To make sure it is extended, we need to be working on it right now. We have already submitted our proposals; they are on the table of the US administration. There has been no answer so far,” Putin said, adding that it looks like the US has not decided yet whether it wants to extend the treaty at all.
