The Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff of the Armed forces of the United States General Joseph Dunford said that Washington should not waive the right to a preemptive nuclear strike at the possible enemy.
According to the military, such a position is correct.
“I think the current policy (allowing for a preemptive nuclear strike. — RT) complicates the decision-making process opponents, and I would not recommend any changes”, — quotes its TASS.
So Dunford commented made by the Democrats in the us Congress a draft law prohibiting the pre-emptive strike.
In March 2018, the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that, reserving the right to preemptive nuclear strike, including using low-yield nuclear weapons, the US is creating dangerous preconditions for the emergence of nuclear-missile war, even during the low-intensity conflict.
Also a Professor of Academy of military Sciences americanist Sergey Sudakov in an interview with NSN praised the military budget of the United States.
