Biden’s advisor said this at an American Peace Institute event broadcast on the organization’s official YouTube channel.

“This is not the end, but only important and consistent negotiations have begun on the entire spectrum of nuclear challenges and threats beyond the START Treaty,” Sullivan said. He added that negotiations with Russia will also touch upon other security issues.

Earlier on January 29, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an agreement to extend the START Treaty for 5 years, until February 5, 2026.

The treaty on reducing the number of strategic offensive weapons was signed in 2010 by the then leaders of the Russian Federation and the United States – Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama. The document came into force in 2011 and expires in February 2021.
