“Nuclear free world is goal rather than dream”- US senator

New START treaty is not in a place to bring about a drastic change but it is another step to nuclear free world, US senator Gary Hart believes.

”Human beings need goals and more than just rhetorical goals, goals that are achievable,” he said. “The United States and Russia are key to this because we have 90 per cent of the nuclear weapons on the Earth and we cannot go to China, or to India, or Pakistan or any other nuclear power friends and say ‘Reduce your nuclear arsenals’ until we have done our jobs.”

”It all begins with the bilateral negotiations between the United States and Russia. If we are serious about that dramatic reductions in this nuclear arsenals, then we widen the club and bring in all the nuclear powers,” Hart added. ”It does seem like an ideal dream but it is a goal to reach for.”
