US Expects to Continue Implementation of New START Treaty With Russia- DoSCC BY-SA 2.0 wiltshirespotter IMG_9291
The U.S. now has 660 deployed Minuteman-III Inter-continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM), Trident-II, Submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), and B-2A and B-52H heavy bombers in its nuclear arsenal for deterrence.
"Implementation of the New START Treaty enhances the safety and security of the United States and our allies and makes strategic relations between the United States and the Russian Federation more stable, transparent, and predictable".
"The United States completed its reductions and achieved these limits in August 2017" while Russian Federation "has repeatedly stated its commitment to the New START Treaty", Nauert said.
The verification regime provides both countries insight into each other's strategic nuclear delivery systems, warheads, and facilities, as well as data exchanges to track the status and makeup of nuclear weapons systems.
"The Russian Federation urges the United States to continue to constructively search for mutually acceptable solutions to the problems related to the conversion and exclusion of arms from the categories provided for in the New START Treaty, as well as any other issues that may arise in the context of implementing the provisions of the New START Treaty", the statement, issued by the ministry read. As of February 5, 2018 our aggregate potential is as follows: "527 operational intercontinental ballistic missiles, operational submarine-launched ballistic missiles and operational heavy bombers; 1,444 warheads on operational intercontinental ballistic missiles, operational submarine-launched ballistic missiles and operational heavy bombers; 779 operational and non-deployed ballistic missile launchers, operational and non-deployed submarine-based ballistic missile launchers and operational and non-deployed heavy bombers". US President Donald Trump in February 2017 criticized New START, but in September the White House hinted there was a possibility the treaty might be prolonged.
"Russia confirms its commitment to the New START treaty".

He stressed the necessity of further disarmament efforts, especially in the current global situation "when global anxieties about nuclear weapons are higher than at any time since the Cold War".
"Russia is in full compliance with its liabilities to reduce strategic offensive weapons".
In a separate statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry also scathingly criticized a different United States nuclear review, saying it could lower the threshold for using nuclear weapons.
The ministry said Russia's military doctrine envisages the use of nuclear weapons to deter an aggression that threatens "the very existence of our state".
"It is even more frightening that the US military and other national security professionals firmly believe in their ability to model conflict scenarios that involve low-yield nuclear options".
It said USA plans to develop new low-yield nuclear weapons "will greatly increase the temptation of using them, especially considering the right to a disarming first strike as set out in the new US doctrine".
