The Czech Republic was asked to host the signing of the new treaty, replacing the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, between the United States of America and the Russian Federation.
The Czech Republic has gladly agreed to host Presidents Obama and Medvedev for the signing ceremony in Prague on April 8, 2010.
As a NATO ally, the Czech Republic is proud and honored to host an event of such a historical and symbolic significance one year after President Obama's first visit to Prague, during which he introduced his vision of a world without nuclear weapons and emphasized the need to strengthen our alliance. "We are bound by shared values, shared history, and the enduring promise of our alliance", said President Obama in Prague.
