"U.S. lawmakers have ratified a new nuclear arms control treaty with Russia, giving President Barack Obama a major foreign policy victory. The Senate Wednesday approved the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as START, with a two-thirds majority vote. The agreement replaces an expired accord, further limiting the number of nuclear weapons Russia and the United States can maintain. It also would also establish a joint system for verification."
