Kucinich, Seven Members Applaud Nuclear Disarmament Deal

WASHINGTON - Congressman Dennis
Kucinich (D-OH) and seven other Members of Congress today sent a letter
to President Obama expressing support for the Administration's efforts
to negotiate a new treaty for nuclear arms reduction with Russia.
 President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev are expected to
sign a treaty to replace the expired Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty
(START) in Prague tomorrow. 

"The successful negotiation of an arms reduction
treaty with Russia lays the groundwork for future cooperation between
our nations.  Furthermore, successful negotiation of such a treaty is
vital in advancing support for a broader international nuclear
nonproliferation initiative.  ...

"The successful and swift ratification of a
replacement to START can serve as a strong starting point for the next
stage of negotiations on further nuclear armament reductions.  We stand
ready to work with you to provide the necessary Congressional support
for ratification," write Kucinich and colleagues.
