Nunn Statement on the Future of the Nunn-Lugar Program

Save to My Resources

For 20 years, the United States and Russia have worked closely together under the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction program. Working in cooperation, we have safeguarded and dismantled stockpiles of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and delivery systems, reducing considerable dangers and improving security for the people of our two nations and the world. 

I hope and expect that the U.S.-Russian partnership will be strengthened by any changes to the program and that the lessons learned and best practices developed by our two nations can help other countries meet their security responsibilities in reducing nuclear, biological and chemical dangers around the globe.
