New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty Factsheet (2010)

On March 26, 2010, President Obama announced a new arms control agreement that will reduce the strategic nuclear arsenals of Russia and the United States. This new treaty replaces the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), which expired on December 5, 2009, as well as the 2002 Moscow Treaty, also known as the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (SORT).

The new treaty limits the number of deployed warheads for each country to 1,550 as well as limits the number of both deployed and non-deployed delivery systems.

The so-called New START agreement was signed April 8, in Prague, Czech Republic, coinciding with an historic speech President Obama delivered there nearly one year ago.
