China, Iran oppose U.S. nuclear weapons policy statement

China decried the US for its "Cold War mentality" on Sunday after Washington announced last week that it plans to diversify its nuclear arsenal with smaller bombs.

Meanwhile, Iran has severely criticized the United States for review of its nuclear policy and outlining plans to expand its nuclear capabilities against its rivals.

China said it "firmly" opposed the Pentagon's nuclear policy review.

In an introductory statement, Mattis said, "We must look reality in the eye and see the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.in no way does this approach lower the nuclear threshold".

China's neighbours have watched warily as the People's Liberation Army has upgraded its arsenal with increasingly sophisticated weaponry and sought to create a more effective and professional fighting force.

The NPR asserts that production of low-yield nukes would enhance the credibility of the American nuclear arsenal. However, in its public statement, Beijing reiterated their nuclear arsenal is the "minimum required" to guarantee the country's security and pledged it would never be the first to use nuclear weapons.

Moscow on Saturday denounced the "bellicose" and "anti-Russian" nature of the new USA nuclear policy, warning it would take necessary measures to ensure its own security.

He noted that the United States owns the world's largest nuclear arsenal. The U.S. has named China, Russia, Iran and North Korea as potential threats.

Commenting on the document, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the possible consequences it might bring to the world.

A leaked version of the review, which the Pentagon is set to release soon, shows that military officials in Washington are calling for the development of a low-yield nuclear bomb that is created to be used on the battlefield instead of urban areas.

In the NPR document, the USA accused China of "expanding its already considerable nuclear forces" but China defended its policy on Sunday saying it would "resolutely stick to peaceful development and pursue a national defence policy that is defensive in nature".

He said he would waive sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the worldwide deal for the last time unless his conditions were met.

In his speech at the State of the Union on Tuesday, Trump did not mention any expansion, although he said that the nuclear arsenal must have the capacity to deter acts of aggression.
