The US will not allow Russia and China to move forward in the modernization and build-up of stockpiles of nuclear weapons. In an interview with CBS News stated by the permanent representative to the Conference on disarmament Robert wood.
He said that USA also upgrade your warehouse, but do not increase the number of machines.
“We have to deal with these growing challenges from Russia and China and to respond to them. And we can’t ignore it. And so when Russia and China are moving in a different trajectory than we are, we must do what is in our national interests and interests of allies,” said wood.
The US Ambassador highlighted the danger posed by China. According to him, the stockpile of nuclear weapons there for the next 10 years can double. The United States believes that it is possible to prevent, when countries will sign a joint contract.
“China was free from any restrictions in relation to arms control, because the treaties on which the United States and Russia agreed in the past, does not include China. We believe that China’s time to rise from the table. And we will continue to insist,” he assured wood.
Earlier, on June 15 at the Stockholm international Institute of peace studies predicted a new nuclear arms race between Russia and the United States. Experts are worried that the situation with the reduction of nuclear weapons may deteriorate if Moscow and Washington cannot agree on the extension of the Contract on reduction of strategic offensive arms (SNV-3). Yet, according to them, there is no progress: the US is trying to connect to the China agreement, which the parties are unable to agree.
Start-3 was signed in 2010 by then presidents of Russia and the USA Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama. The agreement came into force in 2011 and his term expires in February 2021-th.
