Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will travel to Moscow in the near future to hold discussions with his Russian counterpart on missile defense and further nuclear reductions.
Dempsey accepted the offer to visit made Wednesday by Gen. Valery Gerasimov, chief of the general staff, to discuss differences on missile defense, said Col. Dave Lapan, Dempsey’s spokesman.
Lapan told the Free Beacon that the chairman has not given his position on additional warhead, bomber, and missile reductions.
However, Dempsey has “acknowledged that there are very detailed discussions underway within the interagency on the issue,” Lapan said.
