'Cold war mentality': China blasts USA nuclear review calling Beijing a threat

US assumptions about China's nuclear development absurd

China said on Sunday it "firmly" opposed the Pentagon's review of U.S. nuclear policy.

The United States" new nuclear policy brings humanity "closer to annihilation', Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said.

"We hope the U.S. side will discard its "cold-war mentality", shoulder its own special and primary responsibility for nuclear disarmament, understand correctly China's strategic intentions and take a fair view on China's national defence and military development", he said.

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

Regarding China, in addition to describing the Asian country as an adversary, Washington pointed out that it is ready to prevent Beijing from taking advantage if it uses that military technology in Asia or accepts its use in a lesser scale.

Acting Undersecretary of State Anita Friedt listens to a question during a press conference on the Review of the Nuclear Posture 2018 at the Pentagon on Friday, February 2.

"What we're trying to do is ensure that our diplomats and our negotiators are in a position to be listened to when we say we want to go forward on nonproliferation and arms control", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters ahead of the review's release Friday.

The Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) envisages short-term plans to modify existing submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) warheads to provide a low-yield option and pursue a modern nuclear-armed sea-launched cruise missile (SLCM) in the long run.

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

He said the USA is playing up the threat of its nuclear strength.

The current US non-strategic nuclear force consists exclusively of a relatively small number of B61 gravity bombs carried by F-15E and allied dual capable aircraft (DCA).

The report said the United States strategy for China is created to "prevent Beijing from mistakenly concluding that it could secure an advantage through the limited use of its theatre nuclear capabilities or that any use of nuclear weapons, however limited, is acceptable".

The United States is incorporating nuclear capability onto the forward-deployable, nuclear-capable F-35 as a replacement for the current aging DCA.

If North Korean launches any nuclear attack against the United States or its allies, it will mean "the end of that regime". "In a competitive situation, you also have to hold at risk, in this case, what North Korea holds dear, to remind them, 'Don't do it".

In a written statement, Trump said the U.S. strategy is created to reduce the possibility of using atomic weapons. The atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima had about the same explosive power. "Only that solution will do".
