From Reuters -
The United States and Russia are unlikely to finish a pact to cut Cold War arsenals of nuclear weapons by a December 5 deadline but still aim to close the deal by year-end, Russian and U.S. sources said Friday.
Diplomats from the two biggest nuclear powers have been trying to prepare a new agreement on cutting atomic weapons before the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty expires.
The new accord will be signed 'in a European country' in December, a Kremlin source told Reuters in Minsk, where President Dmitry Medvedev was meeting regional leaders."
