MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday everyone would win if the New START nuclear arms control treaty was prolonged without preconditions, but added it was worth waiting for the US political situation to settle.

The New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) accord, signed in 2010, limits the numbers of strategic nuclear warheads, missiles and bombers that Russia and the United States can deploy. It expires in February.
