Obama had promised more money for nuclear arsenal in exchange for approval of the START Treaty

Obama administration would have offered to spend four billion dollars plus five years for the production of nuclear weapons in exchange for the adoption in Congress of the START Treaty with Russia.

Republicans have conditioned their support for this treaty to supplement the budget for weapons production facilities in the country.

White House officials went to Capitol Hill Friday and argued that the administration is ready to add 4.1 million dollars for nuclear plants, according to sources in Congress.

The White House refused to confirm that this offer, but one official put it under cover of anonymity, said Vice President Joe Biden promised the senators that the administration will review the spending plan after they complained that the first increase was insufficient.
