Russia's upper and lower houses of parliament have approved an extension of the New START nuclear weapons control treaty with the United States, which, according to a senior official, was agreed to in Moscow.

The Kremlin announced on Tuesday that the two countries had reached an agreement to extend the treaty, signed in 2010, expiring next week and limiting the number of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles and bombers that Russia and the United States could develop. .

The New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) is a cornerstone of global arms control.

"The essence of the agreement is to extend it for five years, as signed, without any changes," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the State Duma (lower house), which was the first to approve the extension of New START.

"The agreement between Moscow and Washington is being extended for a maximum of five years until February 5, 2026," the Duma said in a televised vote following the unanimous vote of the plenary.

Ryabkov said the extension was approved "on our terms", TASS news agency reported. The upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, recently approved the extension of the treaty. Following its approval by both houses of parliament, the bill is expected to become state law when signed by President Vladimir Putin.

Moscow and Washington have failed to agree on an extension under former US President Donald Trump, whose government has sought to attach conditions to a renewal of the treaty, which Moscow has rejected.

In a telephone conversation yesterday, Putin and US President Joe Biden agreed that their teams would work urgently to complete the extension by February 5, when the treaty expires.
