China slams USA nuclear expansion

China slams USA nuclear expansion

In the USA review of nuclear policy released on Friday, the first one since 2010, the Pentagon said China had pursued new nuclear capabilities and challenged U.S. interests in the Western Pacific.

Washington also considered China a possible nuclear adversary and noted that the United States arsenal is created to "prevent Beijing from mistakenly concluding" that it can take advantage if it uses its atomic weapons in Asia, or that "the use of nuclear weapons on a limited scale is acceptable".

China called for the U.S.to stop a policy it said harkened back to the days of the Soviet Union. In his first state-of-the-union address on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump referred to China and Russian Federation as rivals that challenged US interests, its economy and values, and called for Congress to "fully fund our great military".

Defence ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang said in a statement that the United States should "correctly understand China's strategic intent and see China's national defence and military build-up in an objective way".

"Peace and development are irreversible global trends".

During his campaign, Trump promised to expand and strengthen the United States' nuclear arsenal.

Trump ordered a year ago, the revision, led by the Pentagon of the USA nuclear arsenal and the policies that govern it.

In addition to new kinds of nuclear weapons, the document calls for the modernization of the U.S.'s current arsenal. It enhances deterrence of strategic attacks against our nation, and our allies and partners, that may not come in the form of nuclear weapons.

As the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump prepares to unveil its review of the U.S. nuclear posture, more experts are warning that developing a new type of nuclear weapon to meet President Donald Trump's demands would trigger an arms race.

Trump mentioned some of the policy goals of the report Tuesday while pointing toward North Korea.

The US nuclear review comes at a time of increasing tension between Washington and Beijing. The two allies, who accuse the North of sending a submarine to torpedo a South Korean warship, have assembled about 20 ships including a 97,000-ton USA aircraft carrier, 200 aircraft and 8,000 personnel.
