United States 'shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with atomic weapon', says Iran's Rouhani

President Donald Trump commissioned a review of nuclear-weapons policy a week after taking office. But critics of the low-yield weapons say they blur the line between nuclear and non-nuclear weapons, making their use more likely.

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

China said yesterday it is "firmly opposed" to the United States' new nuclear weapons policy statement, describing its speculation about Chinese intentions as "wild guesses".

By expanding its own low-yield nuclear capability, the USA would deter Russian Federation from using nuclear weapons, according to American officials. "I'm afraid this Nuclear Posture Review will be used by other countries to ignore calls for nuclear arms reduction, and in doing so leave the world less safe".

"Signs that Russian Federation is re-arming, not only conventionally but with nuclear weapons, are obvious", Gabriel said. It calls for two types of nuclear weapons not now in the arsenal.

The US is "shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with an atomic weapon", according to Iran's President Hassan Rouhani. "By any measure, the USA arsenal is far superior", Gregory Kulacki, an expert at UCS said. The Russian statement went on to call the document "an unscrupulous attempt to shift onto others one's own responsibility for the degrading situation in the field of worldwide and regional security".

The Trump administration's proposal to add a sea-launched cruise missile to the US nuclear arsenal, criticized by some as overkill, is meant to provide new negotiating leverage to USA diplomats trying to persuade Russian Federation to end violations of a key arms control treaty, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday.

Much like the transition tag, the Washington Redskins would have seven days to match a signed offer sheet. For some teams, the idea of not having to commit to Cousins long-term could be appealing.

Any adversary would be uncertain of the yield of an incoming nuclear weapon launched from a strategic submarine, and would nearly certainly respond with strategic weapons, she said.

The United States would spend $1.2 trillion over the next 30 years on the nuclear weapons.

Greg Weaver, deputy director of strategic capabilities at the Pentagon, told Reuters the us would be willing to limit developing the sea-launched missile if Russian Federation would "redress the imbalance in non-strategic nuclear forces". Most of that money would go to new generations of bombers and new submarines, and a rebuilding of the land-based nuclear missile force that still dots giant fields across the West.

"We hope that the United States will abandon its Cold War mentality", Mr Ren said. 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.

"Any use will trigger a nuclear weapons conflict with catastrophic humanitarian consequences for civilians". They'll just increase the potential for their use and for miscalculation.

Weaver said the most hard task for those working on the review was trying to address the gap between Russian and American non-strategic nuclear weapons.

"The same people who supposedly believe that using weapons of mass destruction is a crime against humanity ... are talking about new weapons to threaten or use against rivals", he said in his televised address.
