President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sign the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in Prague, Czech Republic. Upon entry into force of the “New START Treaty,” each side would slash its deployed nuclear warhead levels to 1,550 and reduce to 800 its total number of ICBMs, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and nuclear-capable bombers. Officials say the US will reduce the nuclear warheads on each of its Minuteman III ICBMs to a single payload. Plans also called for reducing the number of MMIIIs from the current 450 to about 420.
