The United States and the Russian Federation have completed negotiations on three Annexes to the Protocol of the New START Treaty and formally exchanged the text today in Moscow. These Annexes contain the technical information and detailed procedures that will be used in implementing the New START Treaty verification regime. The Annexes provide formats for the Treaty’s notifications and spell out the procedures for the conduct of inspection activities and the exchange of telemetric information. This completes the Treaty documents that will be transmitted to the Senate in May for its advice and consent to ratification. The Annexes are posted on the Department of State website, along with the Treaty and Protocol
