US, Russia ties at 'virtually lowest point' - Kremlin

The ties between Russia and the United States are "virtually" at their lowest historical point, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday.

"The situation is dire with regard to bilateral relations and, probably, in terms of the responsibilities of our two countries for multilateral affairs, first and foremost over arms control and global stability," Peskov noted.

The spokesman stated that Washington and Moscow started contacts on arms control, especially the New START. His comments come as the US has been calling for China to join nuclear disarmament talks, but Peskov commented that nuclear disarmament must be the foremost responsibility of the US and Russia as no other country has as large a nuclear arsenal as they do.
