Thinking about how to achieve a word without nuclear weapons is a high priority. The 2010 New START treaty opens the door to deeper Russian–US reductions in nuclear weapons. Other states that possess nuclear weapons will have to be involved early on if momentum is to be sustained. Supporting agreements will be necessary that will block the acquisition of nuclear weapons by additional states and the development of alternative threats, such as biological weapons. Deterrence will remain in the forms of reconstitutable nuclear forces and of modern conventional capabilities. The ability of the UN Security Council to enforce compliance and the authority of regional institutions will also require strengthening.
