WASHINGTON, (BM) – The buildup of nuclear weapons stockpiles in Russia and China is a serious concern in the United States, so the American side intends to take steps aimed at protecting national interests.
This statement was made in an interview with CBS News by the US representative to the Conference on Disarmament, Robert Wood, reports Russian Dialogue.
According to him, the American side is modernizing the existing weapons, but does not increase the number of equipment. Today, the States are facing increasing threats from Moscow and Beijing, and the Americans will not turn a blind eye to this, the source said. In particular, he drew attention to the danger posed by China.
Wood noted that the PRC was freed from any arms control since the earlier agreements between Washington and Moscow did not include Beijing. If in the near future China does not join such agreements, then over the next 10 years, nuclear stocks in this country may double.
In this regard, the American side will insist that China sit at the negotiating table on this issue, Wood concluded. The other day, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced the Alliance’s decision to strengthen missile and air defense systems due to Russia’s activity in the nuclear missile sphere.
Prior to this, American experts called the Russian nuclear submarine “Khabarovsk” project 09851 the most secret submarine of the Russian Navy. Recall, Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the conditions for the use of nuclear weapons.
