Washington, DC – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul released the following statement on the State Department’s report that Russia is in non-compliance with key aspects of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START). McCaul made his concerns clear about Russia violating the New START in a January 23 letter to the State Department.
“This report, unfortunately, validated my concerns that Russia is in non-compliance with key aspects of the treaty. Russia’s behavior, combined with China’s massive nuclear modernization, Iran’s continued expansion of its nuclear program, and North Korea’s provocative ICBM tests represent real threats to U.S. national security. It is vital the Biden administration pursues forward-leaning diplomacy to address these growing threats. Failure to enforce existing treaty obligations endangers our security and that of our allies.”
