Obama renews call for nuclear reductions
BERLIN - President Barack Obama is calling for a one-third reduction of the world's nuclear stockpiles.
Obama spoke today at Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate, a powerful symbol of the Cold War. He says it's possible to ensure American security and a strong deterrent and also reduce nuclear weapons.
He says he intends to seek negotiated cuts with Russia to move beyond a Cold War nuclear posture.
Obama is pledging to work with NATO allies to forge a new international framework for peaceful nuclear power. He says the U.S. will hold a summit in 2016 on securing nuclear materials around the world.
He's also calling for a treaty to end production of fissile material.
