US scraps nuclear deal with Russia

I can't believe that this story hasn't been posted on ATS so far. That deal was discussed and started when Bill Clinton was in office and is now being stopped by Rice because of the Georgia conflict.



”We make this decision with regret. Unfortunately, given the current environment, the time is not right for this agreement. We will re-evaluate the situation at a later date as we follow developments closely,” Rice said.
