Hagan Comments on Senate Ratification of New START Treaty


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Kay R. Hagan (D-NC) today supported ratification of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START). The Senate voted 71-26 to ratify the treaty.

"New START is a positive step toward a world with fewer nuclear weapons," Hagan said. "It will strengthen strategic nuclear weapons stability with Russia and enable the U.S. to modernize its nuclear weapons and delivery systems.

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen all strongly support the New START treaty. I am pleased that today the Senate voted in a bipartisan way to ratify the treaty because it is critical to our national security."
