The US intends to seek a five-year extension of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, the last remaining arms control agreement between Washington and Moscow. reports citing foreign media that the new START deal is set to expire on Feb. 5.

"This extension makes even more sense when the relationship with Russia is adversarial as it is at this time," said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki at a press briefing.

Psaki said even as the US works with Russia to advance America’s interests, President Joe Biden is issuing a tasking to the intelligence community for its "full assessment" of the SolarWinds cyber breach, Russian interference in the 2020 elections, poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny and alleged bounties on US troops in Afghanistan.
