She noted that the ABM Treaty consists of only three pages and provides for the reduction of the warheads which are in the service in Russia and in the United States to the levels of 1.7 - 2.2 thousand on both sides. Condoleezza Rice emphasized that the new relations between the United States and Russia rested on more and more common interests and mutual trust. Together with Russia we have achieved a considerable progress on the anti-terrorist front, said the US President\'s adviser and added that among other documents which will be signed at the summit there is a joint statement on the fight against international terrorism. Condoleezza Rice said that the Presidents would also discuss other issues, including cooperation in the power industry, the problems of the safe storage of nuclear materials, and the non-proliferation problems. We want to discuss the question of the weapons of mass destruction, of control over them and control over biological, chemical and nuclear materials to prevent their leakage, said the adviser of George Bush.
