the United States plans to create “the most powerful” nuclear power in the world in the absence of agreements on arms control with Russia and China. This was stated by the head of the White house Donald trump, reports RIA Novosti.

“Now Russia and China both want to negotiate with us to stop the insane spending billions and billions of dollars on nuclear weapons. But the only way until we have that agreement, the only thing I can do is to create the most powerful nuclear forces in the world,” – said the President of the United States.

the validity of the Treaty on measures for the further reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms (SNV-3) will expire at the beginning of 2021, and Washington has not yet made a decision on its extension.

Earlier Vladimir Putin said that Russia is ready to the end of 2019 to extend the Contract on the limitation of strategic offensive arms SNV-3. US proposal to extend the validity of the document did not respond.

the Treaty on the limitation of strategic offensive arms was signed by Moscow and Washington in 2010. The agreement shall remain in force for 10 years until February 5, 2021.
