Corker Backs Russia Nuclear Treaty With Republican Conditions

Senator Bob Corker, a senior Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he will support sending a nuclear arms-reduction treaty to the full Senate under conditions that address his party’s questions about the pact with Russia.

Corker, of Tennessee, is among Republicans who have questioned whether the treaty limited the ability of the U.S. to fully develop defenses against missiles and whether President Barack Obama’s plans to maintain the effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear weapons complex are sufficient.
