Putin says he told Trump Russia prepared to extend START treaty

WASHINGTON - Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview broadcast on Monday he told US President Donald Trump that Russia is prepared to extend the START nuclear treaty that expires in 2021.

"I reassured President Trump that Russia stands ready to extend this treaty, to prolong it, but we have to agree on the specifics at first, because we have some questions to our American partners. We think that they are not fully compliant with the treaty, but this is for experts to decide," Putin told Fox News in an interview following a summit between the two leaders on Monday in Helsinki.
