RESET: Russia says it will not renew arms agreement with U.S.Posted: October 10, 2012

The death of the 1991 agreement, which had been renewed twice, is the latest in a series of hitches in relations between the United States and Russia and casts doubt on the future of the much-vaunted “reset” in relations between the Cold War-era foes.
