The Russian Federation expects to resolve all the issues with the United States on extending the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), Reuters reports.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that work on extending the treaty, which expires next February, was continuing at the level of experts.

We hope that all differences about the issue will be overcome through dialogue,” the statement said.

It is worth noting that the New START, signed back in 2010, limits the numbers of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles, and bombers that both countries can deploy.

As we reported earlier, the Administration of U.S. President Donald Trump asked the Strategic Command in Nebraska to estimate how quickly it can remove the nuclear weapon from the storages and load the bombers and submarines with it if the country does not extend the arms control treaty with Russia.

According to the sources, the request to the Strategic Command is a part of the strategy of pressure on Moscow to reconsider the New Start before the presidential elections.
