US President Barack Obama wants to free the world from nuclear weapons. He stated this in an interview with the Japanese television channel NHK.
Obama noted that for today the little progress has been achieved in the field of nuclear disarmament. At least, there is no upward trend in the volume of nuclear weapons in the countries that already have it.
US president also said that he had tried to negotiate with the Russian side to reduce their nuclear capabilities and "succeeded during his first presidential term," - the report said.
"However, at the moment Russia has not shown that it has an interest to do more," - said Obama.
