It's necessary to extend New START treaty - Ryabkov

The extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) is necessary in order to provide enough "time for profound discussions of a new configuration in this sphere," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday.

"It is necessary to double efforts to keep the backbone, the foundation of what has served a good service over decades in strengthening international security and our national security," Ryabkov stated.

Further, the Russian official asserted Moscow will "take care of its security by all available means" without consideration for treaties similar to the Helsinki Accords, which dealt with the issues of cooperation, security and human rights between the East and the West, as there is no enthusiasm for such agreements anymore.
