Talk on arms treaty

Ambassador Linton Brooks to talk on “A New START and Beyond”

By Special to the Monitor

With the announcement that President Obama and Russian President Dmitri Medvedev have agreed to sign a new nuclear arms reduction treaty, a timely talk entitled “A New START and Beyond” by arms control expert Linton Brooks has been scheduled by the Los Alamos Committee on Arms Control and International Security.  

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m Tuesday in the meeting room at the new Holiday Inn Express located on Hwy 502 at the entrance to Los Alamos.

The new treaty replaces the recently expired Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), a major pact between the two nuclear superpowers since 1991. It will further cut deployed strategic nuclear warheads for each party to no more than 1,550 and sets limits on numbers of deployed missiles, launchers and warheads.  

It has a verification regime that includes on-site inspections and data exchanges.

After the scheduled signing in Prague Thursday, the treaty must await ratification by the Russian Duma and the U.S. Senate before entry into force.

Brooks served as the chief negotiator for the original START. He is now an independent consultant on national security. From 2002 to 2007 he was the administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration responsible for U.S. nuclear weapons and international

nonproliferation programs.
