US President Barack Obama vowed on Monday to pursue further nuclear arms cuts with Russia, saying the US has more warheads than necessary, even as he issued stern warnings to North Korea and Iran.

Obama held out the prospect of new reductions in the US arsenal as he sought to rally world leaders for additional concrete steps against the threat of nuclear terrorism.

“We can already say with confidence that we have more nuclear weapons than we need,” Obama told students at South Korea’s Hankuk University.

He pledged a new arms-control push with incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin when they meet in May.
