Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–November 16, 2010.  Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) released the following statement today on ratification of the New START Treaty:

“I talked with Senator Kyl today and I do not believe the door is closed to considering New START during the lame duck session.  I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Lugar, Senator Kyl, our colleagues, and the Administration to get the New START treaty ratified by the Senate this year.  Ratifying New START is not a political choice, it’s a national security imperative.”
