The U.S. will abandon the arms race

Jeffrey Eberhardt, Special Representative of the U.S. President for Nuclear Nonproliferation, commented on the country’s position on arms races. He said that the States intend to stop them.

Eberhardt said that the United States wanted to abandon the arms race to regain confidence in the country. According to him, the United States still wants to “take steps to reduce the role of nuclear weapons.” At the same time, the country plans to maintain its strategic deterrence potential.

“We will move away from expensive arms races and restore confidence in the United States as a leader in the field of arms control,” Eberhardt stressed at a meeting of the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly (UN).

Earlier it became known that the United States has reduced the number of nuclear warheads to a minimum over the past 60 years. According to the State Department, in 2020, the States had only 3750 warheads, while in 2019 — 3805, and 2018 – 3785.
