Stop Development of New Nuclear Weapons

"He will stop the development of new nuclear weapons; work with Russia to take U.S. and Russian ballistic missiles off hair-trigger alert; seek dramatic reductions in U.S. and Russian stockpiles of nuclear weapons and material; and set a goal to expand the U.S.-Russian ban on intermediate-range missiles so that the agreement is global." — Obama's Blueprint for Change

Clinton Promises More Diplomatic Approach With Iran, North Korea

Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton has been adamant about using diplomacy — rather than the Bush administration’s more hard-line, military-focused approach — with nuclear renegades like Iran and North Korea.

In her confirmation hearing Jan. 13, Clinton said the U.S. would “seek to halt Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons by using diplomacy, sanctions and coalitions with other concerned countries." She also described Iran's development of nuclear weapons as "unacceptable." She added that the Obama administration is reviewing the six-nation talks, led by the U.S. and China, to end Iran’s nuclear weapons development.
