This hearing will focus on the future of arms control agreements with Russia, particularly with the end of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and the looming negotiations over extending the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START). The hearing will highlight the effectiveness of U.S. efforts and bilateral and multilateral commitments on nonproliferation in the past and the changing strategic environment on global arms control with the rise of China.
