Statement by the Russian-American Arms Control Conference

Moscow, April 9-10, 2019

We, Russian and American experts on national security issues, are deeply concerned about the deterioration of international security, the prospect of increased rivalry between the leading world powers in the strategic sphere and the increased risk of military confrontation that could lead to the use of nuclear weapons. We call on the governments of the two countries to express their commitment to countering these alarming trends and strengthening strategic stability, including:

  • Confirmation of the Reagan-Gorbachev statement that a nuclear war cannot be defeated and it cannot be started;
  • Extension of START-3 until 2026, as provided for in Article XIV of the Treaty or negotiations;
  • Recognition of the need to avoid a new arms race as a result of the likely termination of the INF Treaty;
  • Conducting regular high-level negotiations on such factors affecting strategic stability and
