"President Barack Obama is pushing a key foreign policy goal, a nuclear arms treaty with Russia, closer to completion.
He was signing documents Wednesday for the New START treaty, a cornerstone of U.S. efforts to "reset" ties with Russia.
The agreement limits each country to 1,550 strategic warheads, down from 2,200. It also re-establishes a monitoring system that ended in December 2009 with the expiration of an earlier arms deal."
