On February 3, 2021, Secretary of State, Antony J. Blinken, announced a five-year extension of the New START Treaty (Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms) with Russia. According to the U.S. Department of State, the Treaty, which originally entered into force in 2011, "enhances U.S. national security by placing verifiable limits on all Russian deployed intercontinental-range nuclear weapons." It imposes aggregate limits on both the U.S. and Russia concerning intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and heavy bombers equipped for nuclear armaments. The Treaty also provides for detailed procedures concerning the implementation and verification of the limits and other treaty obligations, including the exchange of telemetric information, on-site inspections, and the operation of the Bilateral Consultative Commission. The extension will last until February 5, 2026. The full text of the treaty is not currently available on the Biden Administration's website, but an archived version of it as signed is available here.
