Russia's Medvedev 'says progress made on START treaty'

Russia and the United States have brought their positions closer over a new START Treaty to curb strategic nuclear weapons, the RIA news agency quoted President Dmitry Medvedev as saying on Saturday.

"The talks will continue, they are not easy, but in general we have agreed with Americans on many positions," RIA quoted Medvedev as saying at a meeting with the leaders of Russian political parties.

The 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, was to expire on Dec. 5 and talks between Washington and Moscow to forge a new accord continue.
