Iran accused the United States on Sunday of threatening Russian Federation with new atomic weapons, after the Trump administration published a document outlining plans to expand its nuclear capabilities in order to deter others.

In a tweet published on Saturday, Zarif wrote, "The US Nuclear Posture Review reflects greater reliance on nukes in violation of the NPT, bringing humankind closer to annihilation".

The Iranian foreign minister went on to add, "no wonder the Doomsday Clock is at its most unsafe since 1953". "We hope that the United States will abandon its Cold War mentality", Ren said.

China "has always kept its own nuclear forces at the minimum level required by national security", Ren said, pointing out that the U.S. has the world's largest nuclear arsenal. "Trump's obduracy in killing the #JCPOA stems from the same risky imprudence", wrote Zarif, who was the chief negotiator in the discussions between Iran and global powers. Moscow on Saturday denounced the "bellicose" and "anti-Russian" nature of the new USA nuclear policy, warning it would take necessary measures to ensure its own security.

Placing China and Russian Federation among the central reasons for its strategic move, the US' policy outline had argued it is necessary to strengthen its nuclear arsenal in its Nuclear Posture Review (NPR).

Officials in a central Italian city have confirmed that a suspect in drive-by shootings against foreigners has been apprehended. PM Paolo Gentiloni warned: "The state will be particularly severe towards anyone thinking of fuelling a spiral of violence".

"Past assumptions that our capability to produce nuclear weapons would not be necessary and that we could permit the required infrastructure to age into obsolescence have proven to be mistaken", argues the report, known as the Nuclear Posture Review. It lowers the threshold for using nuclear weapons, a particularly frightening proposition given this president's support for a nuclear arms race.

"Our long-term aim must continue to be a world without nuclear weapons", Gabriel said - the stated aim of U.S. nuclear policy under Barack Obama.

"It is now clear that the United States must have sufficient research, design, development and production capacity to support the sustainment and replacement of its nuclear forces". "We will always be in need of a defensive power".
