US, Russia to discuss nuclear arms limits in Geneva on Wednesday
July 16, 2019

Representatives from the United States and Russia are set to meet in Geneva tomorrow (Wednesday) to explore the concept of a new accord limiting nuclear arms that could eventually include China.

Senior U.S. officials said, meeting would be some greater clarity about where the Russians see things going with the Chinese.

China’s Foreign Ministry reiterated that the country had no interest in joining such talks.

The Geneva meeting will be just two weeks before the United States withdraws from the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty that required both countries to eliminate short-range and intermediate-range nuclear and conventional missiles.
