Obama to Ink Deal With Russia

President Barack Obama headed to Prague Wednesday night to sign an arms treaty with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. Next week, the White House will host a major nuclear-weapons summit that will include more than 30 heads of state. Prague was the site of Obama’s speech last year in which he called for a nuclear-free globe. It’s a huge goal that likely won’t be met in this administration, but the president aims to show the world he’s serious. Newsweek offers him a to-do list to further those goals, including making good on a promise to renew relations with Russia, tell countries with ambitious terrorists that they’ll be held accountable, pressure “outlier” states, and be sincere about shrinking weapons stockpiles.
