Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen urged the U.S. Senate to approve a new arms control START Treaty with Russia. They testified as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee began hearings May 18, 2010 on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. The treaty, which would replace the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty and the 2002 Moscow Treaty, was signed by President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at Prague Castle on April 8.
