Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office written question – answered on 28th February 2023.
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what discussions he has had with his United States counterpart on Russia's announced suspension of participation in the New START Treaty.
The UK has long valued New START for its contribution to strategic stability, transparency and building trust. Russia's unilateral suspension undermines this. We have been, and will remain, in close contact with the US to discuss Russia's withdrawal from New START and its implications. We have expressed at NATO our disappointment in this decision and urge Russia to immediately return to full compliance of the Treaty and to engage with the US constructively.
