The United States has agreed to hold nuclear arms talks with Russia under a new agreement. This was announced by U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Arms Control Marshall S. Billingslea on his Twitter page.
"Today agreed with the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov on time and place for nuclear arms negotiations in June. China also invited. Will China show and negotiate in good faith?," Billingslea wrote.
He did not specify where or when the nuclear weapons talks are expected to take place, but Bloomberg reports that a meeting between representatives of Russia and the United States may take place on June 22 in Vienna.
As we reported earlier, the leadership of DPRK seeks to increase the nuclear power of its army and, at an expanded meeting, considered new policy directions to further increase nuclear deterrence, as well as to bring strategic forces to high alert.
According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), DPRK leader Kim Jong-un was personally present at the event. However, there is no confirmation of this information from other independent sources.
