A new report by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace includes a contribution from Kingston Reif, the Center’s Director for Nuclear Non-Proliferation. The report is entitled “Beyond Treaties: Immediate Steps to Reduce Nuclear Dangers,” and proposes a number of confidence-building measures that the U.S. and Russia can undertake to reduce nuclear risks and build trust between the two nations.
Kingston’s contribution dealt with information sharing between the two nations. Here’s a teaser:
The exchange of information on offensive forces beyond that mandated by New START would strengthen predictability, reduce uncertainty, and pave the way for negotiations that would limit all types of nuclear warheads, including tactical warheads.
Be sure to check out the whole report, which includes excellent contributions from Ambassador Linton Brooks, who led the New START negotiations, Jeffrey Lewis, and a number of other experts.
