The issue has been rediscovered by politicians in the wake of Trump's election.

Historically a close USA ally and key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member, nuclear weapons were a divisive issue in Germany's cold war politics. "No wonder then that the Doomsday Clock was set at two minutes to midnight or Armageddon", he noted.

It is the first time since 2010 that the US military has enunciated how it foresees nuclear threats in the coming decades.

Robert Soofer, a senior nuclear policy official at the Pentagon who helped direct the policy review, said Moscow is likely to push back on the USA plan for fielding those two additional weapons.

In an editorial titled 'Playing with Fire and Fury on North Korea, ' the New York Times wrote on February 2 that "signs increasingly point to unilateral American military action" against North Korea. The data also revealed that Israel, which has never denied or confirmed having nuclear weapons, has 80 warheads in its nuclear arsenal and North Korea was predicted to have at least 20 of the weapons of mass destruction.

The sea-based weapons will include a low-yield submarine-launched ballistic missile and a sea-launched cruise missile.

It is essential to promote realistic nuclear disarmament through efforts to ease tensions among the United States, Russia and others, and through an improvement in the security environment.

Far from deterring nuclear proliferation, the new U.S. review was likely to motivate other nations to follow the example of North Korea in defying worldwide pressure to develop their own atomic deterrents, Freeman advised.

Thus a 2013 Report on Nuclear Employment Strategy stated that all plans for use of nuclear weapons must "for instance, apply the principles of distinction and proportionality and seek to minimize the collateral damage to civilian populations and civilian objects".

Joan Rohlfing, president and chief operating officer of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, said putting tactic and strategic nuclear weapons on the same platform, such as a strategic submarine, may easily lead to miscalculations.

"The truth is that nuclear weapons can not be used in compliance with that law, above all because their massive indiscriminate effects make it impossible to distinguish between military targets and civilian populations and infrastructure", he noted.

"There is no scenario in which the Kim regime could employ nuclear weapons and survive", it says.

China also called on Washington to honor its commitments to reduce its own nuclear arsenal. "And it raises the risks of nuclear war".

The US is concerned about its nuclear arsenal becoming obsolete and no longer an effective deterrent. Within the treaty, both the nations are bound to share their nuclear details with each other to assure the compliance.

"In the Trump NPR, nuclear munitions are viewed as playing a significant and growing role in USA military strategy, and so their numbers and types should be increased to make this possible", the expert said. The next which comes in line in France with 300 weapons followed by China that has 270.

Rouhani, who opened the way to Tehran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers including the USA, added: "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".

The Trump nuclear doctrine breaks with Obama's in ending his push to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in US defense policy.

We hope that this trend continues and that the USA will no longer see the need to further boost its already top nuclear capability, lest this spur traditional Cold War rival Russian Federation to respond and trigger a new worldwide arms race.

David Krieger, President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation said: "The prohibition and elimination of nuclear weapons is the only rational choice". According to data released by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), United States of America and Russian Federation are the global leaders of nuclear ammunition and boast a combined total of nearly 14,000 nuclear weapons alone.
