Obama Again Urges Cuts in Nuclear Arsenals

At the site of John F. Kennedy’s famous Cold War speech of a half century ago, President Barack Obama has again called for cuts in U.S. and Russian nuclear stockpiles.

He told a crowd near Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate that the security of the United States and its allies can be preserved even as the number of nuclear weapons is reduced by up to one third.

Russia is reacting skeptically. A Russian foreign policy aide says any plans for further arms reduction will have to involve countries beyond Russia and the United States. He says the situation is “far from what it was in the `60s and `70s.”

And the head of the foreign affairs committee in the Russian parliament tells the Interfax news agency that Obama’s proposals need “serious revision” — in order to make Russia see them as “serious and not as propaganda proposals.”
