Russia ready to work with Biden on New START - Peskov

Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated on Wednesday Russia was ready to cooperate with the new United States President Joe Biden's administration on extending the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START).

"If our American colleagues will, in fact, demonstrate a political will to preserve this pact by extending, this can only be welcomed," he said.

Earlier this week, Antony Blinken, Biden's pick for State Secretary, said the administration would look into the extension to the deal, as well as into "the challenge posed to us by Russia."
