(FOX NEWS) President Obama will renew his push for a reduction in the world’s nuclear stockpiles during a foreign-policy speech in Berlin Wednesday, according to a senior administration official.

Obama will propose a one-third reduction in U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear warheads, lowering the total number of warheads in each country to between 1,000 and 1,100, the official said.

The potential reductions would be from a current limit of 1,550, the number set in the New START treaty that was ratified by the Senate in December 2010.
