WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says it's a step toward
"a world without nuclear weapons." He and Russian President
Dmitry Medvedev (dih-MEE'-tree med-VYEH'-dyev) agreed today on a
sharp cut in the nuclear arsenals of both countries. It's the most
comprehensive arms control treaty in two decades. Obama says, "We
have turned words into action."

Meanwhile, the White House says the new nuclear arms
reduction treaty between the U.S. and Russia imposes no limits on
current or planned U.S. missile defenses.

Russia, which is highly critical of U.S. missile defense plans, had sought to include such limits in the treaty. Officials say the treaty also does not impose limits on planned U.S. long-range non-nuclear missiles.
