President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev are meeting for the first time today. Obama plans to open negotiation today to draft a new arms control treaty that could slash American and Russian strategic nuclear arsenals by about a third and possibly lead to even deeper reductions. For more, we talk with Clifford Levy, Moscow bureau chief for the New York Times.
"What's going on now is a bit like a first date. Both sides are sort of looking for all sorts of signals and suggestions and hints. They're trying to get a sense of whether there's a real future to this relationship." —Clifford Levy of the New York Times on Obama's meeting with Dmitry Medvedev
