U.s. Senators Move Abm Treaty Bill, Russia Approves

Russia is enthusiastic about a bill on US dedication to the ABM treaty, as offered to the Senate by a group of its members, says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The premises of the bill largely coincide with the opinions of an overwhelming majority of the world's countries--Russia among them--who insist on the utmost consideration for the 1972 treaty, point out Moscow diplomats. The approach to strategic offensive and defensive arsenals must work for national security of all countries, not only Russia and the USA. That is a point which Russia consistently promotes in its dialogue with the United States, and on which Presidents Vladimir Putin and George W. Bush agreed as they met in Genoa, Italy, stresses the ministry. As the US Senate bill team sees it, the ABM treaty spectacularly promotes strategic stability, strategic offensive arms reduction, and progress to safer and more reliable nuclear doctrines. The treaty remains crucial in arms control, nuclear nonproliferation and US national security. The treaty ought to survive and be buttressed as Russia and the USA together work to meet the latest security challenges and achieve understandings on strategic offensive arsenals and anti-missile defense, insist the Senators.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
