(WASHINGTON TIMES) SEOUL — Seeking to lead by example on the nuclear dangers posed by North Korea and Iran, President Obama said Monday he’ll pursue talks with Russia to further reduce U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals.

“I’m confident that, working together, we can continue to make progress and reduce our nuclear stockpiles,” Mr. Obama said at Hankuk University at the start of a two-day summit on nuclear security with more than 50 world leaders.

In an address that focused largely on North Korea’s belligerence, the president said the U.S. has a “unique responsibility” to show the rest of the world the way to reduce nuclear arsenals and halt development of new weapons. The focus of the summit is preventing terrorists from obtaining nuclear weapons.
