Clinton in Russia for nuke, Mideast talks

Moscow, Russia (CNN) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Russia on Thursday to jump-start talks on two diplomatic fronts: a new nuclear treaty between the countries and the stalled Mideast peace process.

Clinton will spend Thursday in talks with senior Russian officials, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Both sides have expressed optimism that they can reach a long-delayed agreement to reduce their nuclear warheads to about 1,500 each before an international summit on nuclear non-proliferation in Washington next month.

The two sides have been trying to negotiate a successor to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), which expired in December.

    She is turning out to be the only one in this administration actually trying to do good work for the country. Its too bad she has to follow the lead of Obama and his warped policies.
