Foreign Affairs Ministry holds nuclear disarmament conference

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is holding a conference on nuclear disarmament to mark the first anniversary of the US- Russian disarmament summit in Prague, and two years since US President Barack Obama’s speech on the issue in the Czech metropolis. Speakers at the event are set to include the White House coordinator for arms control Gary Samore and Russian presidential advisor on foreign affairs Sergei Prikhodko. The New START treaty requires the two former Cold War leaders to decrease their nuclear arsenals by one third.
