President Obama says a preliminary agreement reached today with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is an important step toward increasing nuclear security.

"We have signed a joint understanding for a follow-on treaty to the START agreement that will reduce our nuclear warheads and delivery systems by up to a third from our current treaty limitations. This legally binding treaty will be completed this year."

这里的by up to a third是不是上升到了这个条约的"第三个等级"?
