On July 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill that suspends the country’s par

The INF Treaty, which was signed by US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, has been c

In an article in Arms Control Today, a monthly magazine on nonprolif
eration and global security, Daryl G. Kimball, executive director of the US-based Arms Cont上海夜生活
rol Association, suggested that the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as New START, be extended for f
ive years in order “to provide a foundation for a more ambitious successor agreement”.
上海夜生活女神会所”Without New START, there would be no legally binding, verifiable limits on the US or Ru
ssian nuclear arsenals for the first time in nearly half a century,” Kimball said.
New START was signed by Russia and the US in 2010 and took effect in 20
11. It replaced the 1991 START I treaty, which expired in 2009, and superseded the 2002
Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, which was terminated when New START took effect.
New START limits the US and Russia to 1,550 deployed warheads on 700 deployed delivery vehicles for long-range, strategic n
uclear warheads. Both sides have reduced their forces, meeting the mandated limits in February last year. If Mosco
w and Washington don’t come to an agreement on an extension, the agreement could die in 2021.

State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co
mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.上海419论坛
After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits
as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.
Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel

Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo

sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.
Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev上海419论坛
er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this
year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account
