Russia Gives Cautious Response to Obama Nuclear Plan

Brett Young and Denis Dyomkin, Reuters
MedvedevRussia responded cautiously on Monday to U.S. President Barack Obama's plans for a nuclear-free world, saying a number of conditions would need to be met for the vision to become reality.

Obama pledged earlier this month in the Czech Republic to cut the U.S. nuclear arsenal, bring the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty into force and seek tough penalties for those that broke rules on non-proliferation.

Ex-US Sec State Urges Republicans to Back Test Ban

Charles J. Hanley, Associated Press
His fellow U.S. Republicans may have been right to vote down the nuclear test-ban treaty a decade ago, but they'd be wrong to scuttle it again as President Barack Obama pushes for Senate ratification, former Secretary of State George P. Shultz said Friday.

North 'Missile Factory' Used Japan Parts

Kyodo News
Japanese precision tools and steel were found in missile-making equipment taken from a North Korean freighter detained at an Indian port in June 1999 while en route to Pakistan, a former senior Indian official said Saturday.

NKorea to Build up Nuclear Deterrent

Agence France-Presse
North Korea said on Saturday it would build up its defence capability including a "nuclear deterrent," accusing the United States and its allies of seeking war against the communist state.

Roula Khalaf, Financial Times
