MOSCOW (AP) - What do you do when Vladimir Putin offers you Russia's new coronavirus vaccine, for free? United Nations staff in New York and around the world are now facing that choice, after the Russian president offered Tuesday to provide them the Sputnik-V vaccine in a speech to this year's General Assembly marking the body's 75th birthday. Only results from small early studies on the Russian vaccine have been published, raising concerns among some scientists that it isn't ready yet for widespread use - and prompting worldwide memes about potential bizarre side effects. "Any one of us could face this dangerous virus. The virus has not spared the staff of the United Nations, its headquarters and regional entities," Putin said in a prerecorded speech from Moscow. The coronavirus pandemic means this year's General Assembly is a work-from-home production, for the first time in its history. "Russia is ready to offer U.N. workers the necessary, qualified help, and in particular we propose to supply our vaccine for free to employees of the organization and its subsidiaries who volunteer for vaccination," said Putin, who announced the vaccine to broad fanfare last month and said his own daughter is among those who have taken it. He described Tuesday's offer as a response to popular demand: "Some colleagues from the U.N. have asked about this, and we will not remain indifferent to them." U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, "We thank President Putin for his generous offer which will be studied by our medical services." At the U.N.'s medical agency in Geneva, the World Health Organization, spokeswoman Dr. Margaret Harris declined to comment. In a report published in the journal Lancet, developers of the Russian vaccine said it appeared to...

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Trump administration has sketched out a framework that it hopes will avoid a three-way arms race as a deadline nears for extending the only remaining nuclear arms control deal with Russia and as China looks to expand its nuclear forces. Ambassador Marshall Billingslea, the special presidential envoy for arms control, spoke with The Associated Press about negotiations with Russia while touring some of the top nuclear research labs and production sites in the United States. Last week's visit to New Mexico, Texas and Tennessee comes as facilities ramp up modernization of the country's multibillion-dollar nuclear enterprise, which includes capabilities for producing the plutonium cores used in warheads and technology for aiding nonproliferation of weapons around the globe. Billingslea said the proposed agreement would be ambitious and that the time is right to "go down this path." "As President Trump has made clear, he intends to and has shown a way ahead with the Russian federation - and ultimately with China - that we can do something that no one has ever done before," he said. Signed in 2010, the New START treaty limits the United States and Russia to no more than 1,550 deployed nuclear warheads and 700 deployed missiles and bombers. It represents the only remaining nuclear arms control deal between the two countries after they both withdrew from the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty last year. Billingslea said the existing New START treaty has loopholes and that any new agreement with Russia should include both nuclear and conventional warheads and bolster verification protocols and transparency. With such an agreement in place, he said China ultimately would not have much of a choice and would need to join...
