It asserts that Russian strategy and doctrine emphasize the potential coercive and military uses of nuclear weapons, and calls for two new US capabilities in response - a sea-launched nuclear cruise missile and a "low-yield" warhead for submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

However, the increasing likelihood the United States was prepared to use a nuclear weapon was bound to provoke a wave of nuclear arming by nations that felt themselves potentially threatened by the U.S. armed forces, making the American people far less safe, Freeman cautioned.

"The same people who supposedly believe that using weapons of mass destruction is a crime against humanity. are talking about new weapons to threaten or use against rivals", said the Iranian president while speaking in a video conference.

In a story February 4 about the Iran nuclear deal, The Associated Press reported erroneously that President Donald Trump re-certified the agreement in January. The document lists non-nuclear attacks that could constitute grounds for U.S. nuclear retaliation; a conventional attack that results in mass casualties or targets key infrastructure could trigger a nuclear response. "The Americans are shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with a new atomic weapon".

Rouhani's remarks were echoed by Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif who said the US' policy was taking the world close to "annihilation". No wonder the Doomsday Clock is at its most unsafe since 1953.

"One of the most disturbing and significant changes to US policy outlined in the NPR is the tighter integration of USA nuclear and conventional forces, including training and exercising with these integrated forces, so USA forces can operate - as the NPR states - in the face of nuclear threats and employment", she said.

The Pentagon document released on Friday, known as the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), argues that developing smaller nuclear weapons would challenge that assumption.

On Sunday, the Chinese foreign ministry said that the USA should focus instead on promoting regional stability, and condemned a U.S. government report that listed Beijing as a potential nuclear enemy.

"The problem is that the U.S. is fighting everybody at the same time, both in terms of trade, NAFTA, and strategy and nuclear ambitions", he said.
