The United States should modernize its nuclear capabilities to deter aggression from other states, US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said during a briefing.
“We must modernize our nuclear capabilities, we must conserve and maintain our nuclear stockpiles so that they remain safe and efficient to use. We will continue to do this in order to restrain nuclear aggression from other states, ”RIA Novosti quoted her as saying.
She did not specify from which countries such aggression comes.
In February, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that the Russian side is categorically opposed to the concept of a limited nuclear war.
As noted in Moscow, the United States is “enthusiastically and publicly” discussing the possibility of using nuclear weapons.
