The United States are ready to participate in arms control talks with Moscow and Beijing, if they meet Washington's criteria, a US Department of State spokesperson told TASS.

"The President has directed us to think more broadly than New START and include both China and Russia in our next steps. We stand ready to engage with both Russia and China on arms control negotiations that meet our criteria," the US Department of State spokesperson said.

"The United States remains committed to effective arms control that advances U.S., Allied, and partner security, is verifiable and enforceable, and includes partners that comply responsibly with their obligations," the spokesperson added.

"The Administration is evaluating the possibility of an extension of the New START Treaty, taking into account the threats we face today, the changing security environment, and Russia’s statement that it has no preconditions to extension," the spokesperson said.
