"A new U.S.-Russia nuclear arms control treaty went into effect today, securing a key foreign policy goal of President Barack Obama and raising hopes among officials on both sides that it will provide the impetus for Moscow and Washington to negotiate further reductions. 'The treaty marks significant progress toward President Obama's vision of a world without nuclear weapons,' U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said after exchanging ratification papers with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of an international security conference in Munich."
