US-Russia report by the bilateral presidential commission

by Partner at StartUp Access on Mar 28, 2012


U.S.-Russia Presidential...

U.S.-Russia Presidential
continues to broaden
and deepen cooperation
between governments
and peoples to advance common
interests. Over the past year, the
Commission’s structure has grown,
with working groups on innovation
and rule of law added to the
now 20 working groups that are
producing practical results. Over
sixty U.S. and Russian government
agencies now support the work of
the Commission and have facilitated
over 400 meetings, exchanges,
exercises, and other joint projects
since the Commission’s start. The
Commission has also served as a
venue for connecting American and Russian citizens across a wide range of professions--from
high technology entrepreneurs to business students, from doctors to nuclear scientists, from
counternarcotics experts to green technology innovators.
On the security front, we have begun implementation of the New START Treaty, restarting
inspection and verification procedures to reinforce the process of agreed reductions in nuclear
weapons and delivery systems; both sides consider implementation to be a success. We also
agreed on important amendments to the Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement,
which will allow both sides to dispose of enough weapon-grade plutonium for a total of 17,000
nuclear weapons. Strengthening bilateral military cooperation is a top Commission goal. In
2011, U.S. and Russian armed forces performed joint exercises and carried out more than 50
military-to-military activities, an unprecedented level of engagement. We have shared best
practices on military reform and modernization in areas such as logistics and personnel management.
Cooperation to bring stability and security to Afghanistan reached new levels in terms
of efforts to equip the Afghan National Security Forces and facilitate the transit of personnel
and equipment in support of multinational operations. Our counternarcotics cooperation has
become more systematic as we conduct joint operations to interrupt supply as well as share
strategies to reduce demand. Joint exercises at sea, in the air and on land bolster our counterterrorism
