    Step Backward on Nuclear Cooperation
    Michael McFaul April 18, 2001 Carnegie

    President Bush and his new foreign policy team have announced that they plan to undertake a full review of all aspects of American policy toward Russia on matters like economic assistance, NATO expansion and missile defense. There must be a new agenda, we are told, because the old approach of cooperation and engagement pursued by the Clinton administration has been ineffective.

    How Effective is the MTCR?
    April 12, 2001 Carnegie

    The MTCR is based on a policy, not a treaty. It focuses on ballistic and cruise missiles capable of delivering a 500 kilogram payload to a range of 300 kilometers. Any rockets or unmanned air vehicles with this capability, including space launch vehicles (SLV's), which are "peaceful" versions of long-range missiles, are subject to a strong presumption of export denial.

    April 12, 2001

    Proposed cuts to a range of U.S. non-proliferation programs in the budget submitted by the White House on April 9 could seriously undermine U.S. efforts to halt the spread of weapons of mass destruction.

    Global Control System: Too Comprehensive?
    Alexander Pikayev April 1, 2001 Paper Prepared for the 2001 Missile Forum Workshop

    The Global Control System (GSK, from the Russian translation) demonstrated itself as a useful mechanism permitting involvement of Missile Technology Control Regime non member states in international discussions on missile proliferation and how to better resist it. Need for such a forum will continue in the future, and Moscow conferences have a reasonable chance of being supported to continue.

    Russian Cabinet Shake-Up, Defense, Nuclear Ministers Replaced
    March 28, 2001

    In a surprise shakeup with some potentially significant implications for US-Russian relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin has replaced his Ministers of Defense and Atomic Energy. The moves, coming as part of a broader government shake-up, is seen as a move by Putin to further consolidate his power by replacing holdovers from the previous Yeltsin administration with people directly loyal to him.

    Into the Breach
    March 27, 2001

    European mediators are filling the vacuum left by President George Bush's decision not to pursue talks with North Korea. Appalled at the cold shoulder Bush gave South Korea's president and democracy hero, Kim Dae Jung, European Union President Goran Persson will soon go to the region to expedite ways to defuse the nuclear missile threat posed by the North. This is a new role for the Europeans, and one long overdue.

    Nonproliferation Programs Face Major Budget Cuts
    March 20, 2001

    Bush administration plans to cut funding for most nonproliferation assistance projects in Russia have triggered concerns among members of Congress and proliferation experts. The cuts could cripple efforts to secure nuclear weapons materials and reduce the risk of nuclear, chemical and biological weapon and ballistic missile proliferation from Russia.

    China: Avoiding a Self-fulfilling Prophecy
    March 13, 2001

    China's announced 18 percent increase in military spending, US consideration of Aegis ship sales to Taiwan and the push for a national missile defense system give new importance to a prescient analysis by Ambassador Chas Freeman at Carnegie in 1999. We present his prescription from that meeting for avoiding heightened tensions with China. Freeman discusses his debate with Chinese officials that gives us both the origin and the true meaning of the famous "Los Angeles" quote.

    North Korea: Hard Line is Not the Best Line
    Jon Wolfsthal March 7, 2001 Carnegie

    U.S.-South Korean relations will be put to the test this week as South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung visits Washington. Kim’s recent summit with Russian President Putin produced a joint statement effectively opposing U.S. plans to deploy national missile defenses, complicating President Bush’s first foray into East Asian security affairs.

    Restructuring of Sanctions Against Iraq
    March 1, 2001

    Secretary of State Colin Powell has called for the easing of U.S. sanctions against Iraqi civilians, while tightening those against the government and military in light of a recent intelligence assessment finding that Iraq may be able to deploy nuclear weapons within three years.

    Americans Against Breaking Treaties For NMD
    February 20, 2001

    The American public remains deeply skeptical of missile defenses. ABC News reports in a recent poll that "most Americans support the concept in principle, but that support dissipates dramatically in the face of counter-arguments on the price, workability and ramifications of the project."
