At a meeting of the country’s security agencies, held on May 15, Russia and China were conducting small-scale nuclear tests. The meeting was attended by heads of various security agencies across the country. But the meeting was called off without a decision to conduct a nuclear test. The current decision to respond to Russian and Chinese provocations is not through a nuclear test, the report said. But the possibility of further negotiations has not been ruled out.
China and Russia, however, have dismissed allegations of nuclear testing. The US has not released any evidence. But observers say the US view of the nuclear test 28 years later is a matter of serious debate. Especially in the event of a rift in the China-Russia-US relationship. But such a test would be a departure from US defense policy. In addition, the US would provide an opportunity for nuclear-armed countries to experiment again. According to analysts, the US is turning a blind eye to the various countries’ war on nuclear weapons.
The new decision will also be a blow to the US pact on North Korea, which has temporarily withdrawn from its nuclear test. North Korea said it believed the US had stopped the nuclear tests and destroyed many test sites. On the other hand, this is part of a US move to sign a new nuclear agreement with Russia and China. The US says it is powerful enough to conduct a nuclear test at any time.
Trump’s nuclear test would lead to a new Cold War, says Beatrice Finn, a member of the Coalition Against Nuclear Weapons. Beatrice added that this would be a step towards eliminating the international regulation of arms transfers internationally. ICAN is the Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2017.
The Washington Post reported that the day after Trump made it clear that he was withdrawing from the Open Skies telephone deal, which was formed to strengthen ties with Russia. Each country that signs the agreement can, in a short time, issue a notice in the sky of another country. This can be done at the specified time each year. This is the third such arms deal that Trump cancels after he takes office. But Russia has decided to go ahead with its 18-year agreement.
