The United States and Russia have not agreed on additional measures to share information on or limit their tactical nuclear weapons. The two countries in March 1997 attempted to explore measures relating to tactical nuclear weapons, however they did not come to an agreement. In June 2005, Russia put new conditions to the talks on tactical nuclear weapons to the US withdrawal of its remaining nuclear weapons in Europe. The United States has said these weapons are deployed as part of NATO policy and that a decision to withdraw them would need to be taken by all alliance members.
