"I am deeply concerned by the lack of progress towards the goal of a nuclear-free world. I call on all States that possess nuclear weapons to adopt risk reduction measures, individually & jointly. The only guarantee against the use of nuclear weapons is their total elimination", reads the message.
Earlier, we reported that China has been constructing over 200 new silos for nuclear missiles.
Financial Times quotes Chinese nuclear arms experts who claim that the construction yard for these silos makes 800 square kilometers, which is the most significant expansion of Chinese nuclear stock in the entire history.
"China is building ten times more silos for ICBMs than it has now", reads the story.
According to the outlet, such increase of current number of missiles will let Beijing surpass the Russian arsenal of ICBMs and make the half of U.S. nuclear stock.
