President Obama visited Army post Fort McNair to mark the 20th anniversary of the Cooperative Threat Reduction U.S.-Russia program to secure nuclear weapons in former Soviet states. The agreement was initiated by Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) and former Senate Sam Nunn (D-GA). President Obama praised the work of both senators, and told humorous stories of his first foreign trip as a senator from Illinois with Senator Lugar. He also spoke of his administration’s commitment to nuclear disarmament, among his remarks saying, “Missile by missile, warhead by warhead, shell by shell, we’re putting a bygone era behind us.” The Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction symposium was held at the National Defense University.

President Obama also addressed the civil war in Syria, warning its President Assad that “there will be consequences” if he used chemical weapons against Syrian citizens. close
