On behalf of NATO, I warmly welcome the agreement between the United States and Russia to substantially reduce the number of nuclear warheads in their respective stockpiles. This is an important contribution to arms control, and an inspiration for further progress.

I congratulate both President Obama and President Medvedev for their vision, leadership and determination in arriving at this important agreement.
