The Biden administration views the New Start Treaty clinched with Russia this week as the beginning of engagement on strategic issues including multilateral arms control, the US envoy said on Thursday.

Robert Wood, US ambassador to the UN in Geneva, speaking at the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament, called for new arms control that “covers more weapons, and eventually more countries”.

“The United States will also seek to engage China on nuclear arms control and risk reduction. I hope that China will join us in that effort,” Wood said.
