This is the second installment of a special series of programs collectively entitled "Joe Biden and ...", focused on the incoming new president. Each program will look at a distinct policy area, reviewing Trump's actions in that area and trying to anticipate what Joe Biden might do differently ... or not.

Barely more than two weeks after Joe Biden takes office, the New START nuclear weapons agreement with Russia is set to expire. It is the sole remaining arms reduction treaty with that country. Will Biden give priority to renewing the agreement? Will Putin?

Meanwhile, Biden has said he's anxious to re-enter the nuclear agreement with Iran that Trump dumped early on in his reign of error. Can Biden's team negotiate a pact-saving agreement?

And the there's North Korea's continued nuclear weapons development program ...

Finally, all of this take place in the context of the new UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons going into effect on January 22, two days after Biden's inauguration. What is this treaty and what might it mean for Biden's nuclear plans?
