Baku – APA. A U.S. official says American and Russian negotiators have left Geneva after failing to conclude a new nuclear weapons treaty in their latest round of negotiations, APA reports quoting Associated Press.
But U.S. mission spokesman in Geneva Michael Parmly says the two sides will meet again in Geneva on March 9.
The long-running talks about a successor to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty were supposed to be finished before it expired Dec. 5. That treaty limited the number of nuclear warheads and carrier systems each side could deploy.
Last week, Russia’s military chief said a deal would be reached soon, and President Barack Obama called his counterpart Dmitry Medvedev to help accelerate an agreement.
Parmly declined to say Monday when the talks might conclude.
