The US government believes that a responsible nuclear power must continue to work with other countries around the world. The commitments under the “New Start” treaty are taken seriously, she stressed.

Amid massive tensions with the West, Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday that he would suspend the “New Start” treaty on mutual nuclear arms control and the limitation of nuclear warheads. According to the Foreign Ministry, Russia intends to continue to adhere to the agreed upper limit for nuclear weapons. The Pentagon spokeswoman also made it clear that Washington and Moscow generally continued to communicate. “It’s not that we shut off communications. We welcome communications with Russia.”
