Statement from Former Senator Sam Nunn
On U.S. Senate Vote to Approve New START
“Today, the United States Senate took strong action to reduce nuclear dangers globally and to improve the safety and security of the American people. The 71-26 vote in the Senate strengthens our cooperation with Russia, which is essential to addressing virtually all of our global security challenges. Today's vote also underscores that there is strong, bipartisan support for nuclear threat reduction and demonstrates to the American public and to the world that reducing nuclear dangers is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue — it is a nonpartisan issue.
“Nuclear threat reduction is essential for the safety and security of the American people and the world. Today's action by the Senate will enhance America's ability to work with other nations to reduce nuclear dangers around the globe and will help pave the path for further progress."
