China slams United States nuke review

US 'shamelessly threatening Russia with atomic weapon', says Iran's Rouhani

"President Trump's Nuclear Posture Review is deeply troubling and is a risky departure from past reviews".

China "always abides by the principle of no first use of nuclear weapons under any circumstances", Mr Ren said, and will "unconditionally not use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear weapon states".

The Trump nuclear doctrine breaks with Obama's in ending his push to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in US defense policy.

In a statement, the ministry expressed hope that the United States would "abandon a Cold War mentality" and "shoulder its special and prior responsibility for its own nuclear disarmament".

We hope that this trend continues and that the U.S. will no longer see the need to further boost its already top nuclear capability, lest this spur traditional Cold War rival Russian Federation to respond and trigger a new worldwide arms race.

Gabriel acknowledged that Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine had led to a "dramatic loss of trust towards Russia" in Europe as well as Washington, and that "signs that Russian Federation is re-arming, not only conventionally but with nuclear weapons, are obvious".

Thomas Karako, a specialist on nuclear issues at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said many people - including Obama - enter government sympathetic to disarmament but moderate their ambitions when confronted with threat intelligence.

The US is "shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with an atomic weapon", according to Iran's President Hassan Rouhani. The U.S. bombers and submarines that carry nuclear warheads offer sufficient deterrence, he has said, and the ICBMs, which sit in fields ready to launch at any moment, could accidentally trigger nuclear war.




Moscow has called the new U.S. policy "bellicose" and "anti-Russian" and warned it might take responsive measures to boost its own security.

"This is a very mainstream nuclear policy", Miller added.

Iran is accusing the US of threatening Russian Federation with the use of new nuclear weapons following the Trump administration's call to expand nuclear capabilities in an aim to deter Moscow, Reuters reported Sunday.

The policy reaffirms a full modernization of the USA nuclear force approved by President Barack Obama, which replaces the military's nuclear bombers, submarines and ICBMs at an estimated cost of $1.2 trillion over 30 years. For example, the policy calls for "the rapid development" of a cruise missile that would be fired from submarines, then become airborne before reaching its target. "The objective is to make clear it is not in others´ interest to use nuclear weapons".

He made a decision to retain the ICBM force because he thinks the hundreds of silos across the heartland serve as an important deterrent for Russian Federation and other potential adversaries, given how hard it would be for an enemy to disable them all in one shot.

Only one country has ever used nuclear weapons against another country.

Pulling out of the 1987 treaty "would allow the United States to develop and deploy short and medium-range cruise missiles against China as well as against Russia", Freeman explained.

"Our tailored strategy for China is created to prevent Beijing from mistakenly concluding that it could secure an advantage through the limited use of its theater nuclear capabilities or that any use of nuclear weapons, however limited, is acceptable", it said.
