Iran's Rouhani raps new USA nuclear plan as threat to Russian Federation

It also calls for the development of a low-yield warhead for some of the nation's submarine ballistic missiles - part of a broader effort to expand the credible options "for responding to nuclear or non-nuclear strategic attack". It notes that such agreements can foster cooperation and confidence among nuclear weapons states and reduce the risk of miscalculation that could lead to war, but it also accuses Russian Federation of undermining those aims by violating numerous treaties.

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

The strategy marks a resounding win for backers of the USA nuclear enterprise and a setback for disarmament advocates.

That probably will arise at a House hearing Tuesday featuring Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

"There is no scenario in which the Kim regime could employ nuclear weapons and survive", it says.

The report contains a sharp warning about a new Russian-made autonomous nuclear torpedo that - while not in violation of the terms of the treaty, known as New START treaty - appears created to cross the Pacific undetected and release a deadly cloud of radioactivity that would leave large parts of the West Coast uninhabitable.

The minister warned "as in the times of the Cold War, we in Europe are especially endangered" by "a renewed nuclear arms race". In a statement Monday, its Foreign Ministry called the review's assertions frightening, "utterly hypocritical" and risky. "I imagine it led to a very awkward phone call with our Asian allies", said Mount, one of several nuclear experts who noticed the error in the preliminary draft. Such a weapon existed for years but was withdrawn from active service by the administration of President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s and retired by the Obama administration.

Gunman opens fire on African migrants in Italy
Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has temporarily suspended campaigning for the March 4 general election over the shootings. Local witnesses said a man fired out of his vehicle window at two young African migrants shortly after 11 a.m. (5.00 a.m.

The report makes "wild guesses" about China's intentions and exaggerates the threat of its nuclear force, defence ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang said in a statement.

James Acton, a nuclear weapons specialist at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said that offer seems disingenuous.

The Pentagon's nuclear review concluded that while arms control can advance American interests, "further progress is hard to envision", in light of what the USA considers Russia's aggression in Ukraine and violations of existing arms deals. The limit on warheads - 1,500 deployable weapons - that goes into effect Monday expires in 2021, and the nuclear review shows no enthusiasm about its chances for renewal.

Russia's Foreign Ministry on Saturday expressed disappointment at the US policy, saying the contents come off as confrontational and anti-Russian, according to the report.

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". Although none of the countries have ever disclosed details of their nuclear arsenal, the staggering number of weapons with them speaks for itself. It didn't provide details but said the changes were done in such a way that Russian Federation is unable to confirm that the reconfigured B-52s and sub-based launchers are truly non-nuclear.

The ministry added that the United States also "arbitrarily converted" some missile-launch facilities designated for training, a use it said wasn't envisaged by the treaty.
