New Start Treaty in 2011

United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): On February 5, 2011, the Treaty between the United States of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (“New START”) entered into force with the exchange of instruments of ratification between Secretary Clinton and Foreign Minister Lavrov. For background on the treaty, see this world legal encyclopedia in relation with the year 2010 at 812-821 and World Encyclopedia of Law 2009 at 786–90. Entry into force in 2011 triggered the commencement of treaty-based verification activities by the parties, including on-site inspections of weapons facilities, exchanges of databases of weapons information, notifications of data changes, as well as meetings of the Bilateral Consultative Commission (“BCC”) established by the treaty. A February 5, 2011 State Department fact sheet, available at (internet link) state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2011/02/156037.htm, outlined the various activities that commenced upon entry into force of the New START Treaty. On April 13, 2011, U.S. inspectors arrived in the Russian Federation for the first U.S. on-site inspection of Russian facilities under New START. See April 13, 2011 State Department media note, available at (internet link) state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2011/04/160727.htm. The BCC held two sessions in 2011 to discuss implementation of the treaty, one in late March to early April and the second from late October to early November, both in Geneva. Further information on New START and its implementation can be found at (internet link) state.gov/t/avc/newstart/index.htm.
