Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Munich, Germany, on February 4 to 6, to participate in the Munich Security Conference where she will conduct a series of bilateral meetings and give remarks highlighting the importance of the transatlantic security relationship.

On Saturday, February 5, the Secretary and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will exchange instruments of ratification for the New START Treaty. Once this exchange occurs, the New START Treaty will enter into force.

A responsible partnership between the world’s two largest nuclear powers to limit our nuclear arsenals while maintaining strategic stability is imperative to promoting global security. With New START, the United States and Russia have reached another milestone in our bilateral relationship and continue the momentum Presidents Obama and Medvedev created with the “reset” nearly two years ago.
