U.S. nuclear policy is going to be more aggressive toward Russian Federation

His statement comes after the Trump administration published a document about its renewed nuclear policy on Friday, 2 February. "The Americans are shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with a new atomic weapon".

"Recent Russian statements on this evolving nuclear weapons doctrine appear to lower the threshold for Moscow's first-use of nuclear weapons", the review said.

James Acton, a nuclear weapons specialist at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said that offer seems disingenuous.

"The US Nuclear Posture Review reflects greater reliance on nukes in violation of the NPT, bringing humankind closer to annihilation", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Saturday, a day after the Pentagon released a new nuclear arms policy that aims to revamp US nuclear arsenal and develop new low-yield atomic weapons.

Russia's Foreign Ministry on Saturday expressed disappointment at the US policy, saying the contents come off as confrontational and anti-Russian, according to the report.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamad Yavad Zarif warned today that the nuclear strategy recently adopted by the United States puts the world on the verge of Apocalypse.

The onus was on Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla to bat for a long period especially with an inexperienced middle order to follow. So did the calm and composed Rahane who scored his fifth consecutive half-century in ODIs.

The Pentagon's nuclear review concluded that while arms control can advance American interests, "further progress is hard to envision", in light of what the US considers Russia's aggression in Ukraine and violations of existing arms deals.

The U.S. government says it has been in compliance since August and expects Moscow to comply by the deadline, which is Monday. Berlin would press "with its allies and partners" for further worldwide disarmament, he said. It also endorsed adhering to existing arms control agreements, including the new START treaty that limits the United States and Russian Federation each to 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads on a maximum of 700 deployed launchers.

Historically a close USA ally and key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member, nuclear weapons were a divisive issue in Germany's cold war politics.

The new USA posture focuses heavily on what the administration sees as an overdue modernization of the nuclear arsenal, the laboratories and plants that support the arsenal, and the far-flung communications and early warning systems that enable the Pentagon to command and control the weapons. Martin Schulz, who challenged Angela Merkel last September, called for remaining American bombs to be removed from Germany. "Trump's obduracy in killing the #JCPOA stems from the same unsafe imprudence", Zarif in a message posted on his official Twitter account on Saturday.

Rouhani is a key figure who helped pave the way for the talks that led to the 2015 nuclear deal with several other global powers.
