GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: ... the United States and Russia has agreed to a treaty which will substantially reduce our nuclear arsenals with an agreed upon range of 1,700 to 2,200 warheads. This treaty will liquidate the legacy of the Cold War.

When I sign the treaty with President Putin in Russia, it will begin the new era of U.S.-Russian relationships, and that's important. The new era will be a period of enhanced mutual security, economic security and improved relations.

I look forward to going to Moscow to sign this treaty. It will be the culmination of a lot of months of hard work and a relationship built on mutual trust that I have established with President Putin in Slovenia. It's good news to the American people today. It'll make the world more peaceful and put behind us the Cold War once and for all.

Thank you all.

PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: Continue to watch the president as he heads for a helicopter to make a trip on the heels of signing the farm bill.
