April 6, 2010

WASHINGTON, April 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the release of the Obama Administration’s Nuclear Posture Review:

“Today, the Obama Administration took another critical step forward in the effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. With this updated policy in place, the United States will continue to lead the global non-proliferation movement and build a future defined by peace and security for all nations.

“This announcement sets an example for countries across the globe. It aims to reduce the size of our nuclear arsenal and halt the expansion of nuclear states. In an age of new threats, this policy works to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of terrorists committed to our destruction. And it ensures that we sustain an effective nuclear deterrent, maintain our nuclear advantage, and reassure our allies and partners.

“I applaud President Obama, Secretaries Gates and Clinton, and America’s national security leaders for their work on the Nuclear Posture Review and, as the President said last year in Prague, for standing together ‘for the right of people everywhere to live free from fear in the 21st century.’”
