Putin offers US an immediate extension to key nuclear pact

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered Thursday to immediately extend the only remaining nuclear arms reduction pact with the United States, but a senior U.S. official said Washington wants a broader deal involving China.

Speaking at a meeting with military officials, Putin said that Russia has repeatedly offered the U.S. to extend the New START treaty that expires in 2021 but that it hasn’t heard back.

“Russia is ready to extend the New START treaty immediately, before the year’s end and without any preconditions,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump should take Putin up on this, and immediately; then, negotiate a separate deal with China.

But looking at the way President Trump does business, I am not holding my breath, that this will actually happen, although I think that somewhere, in his heart of hearts, he knows it to be the right thing to do.
