U.S. Senate Ratification of “New START" Treaty Spurs Flurry of National Media Quotes from CNS Experts
December 22, 2010
The United States Senate voted to ratify the “New START Treaty,” a nuclear arms reduction agreement between Russia and the U.S. on December 22. On that day, Miles Pomper, senior research associate at the Monterey Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) was interviewed on the popular afternoon NPR show All Things Considered.
McClatchy newspapers quoted Mr. Pomper’s colleague, Dr. Nikolai Sokov, senior research associate at CNS who participated in the START I and START II negotiation on behalf of Russia. The McClatchy news story has already been picked up and printed in a number of newspapers around the U.S. Dr. Sokov was also widely quoted last week when there was speculation in the national media about whether or not the nuclear arms treaty would get enough Republican support in the Senate to pass this year.
Mr. Pomper and Dr. Sokov co-wrote the article “New START Ratification: A Bittersweet Success” on the CNS website and there you can also find Stephen Schwartz’s analysis: “New START and the Maintenance and Modernization of the US Nuclear Weapons.”
