The Pentagon has released a new report on China’s rapidly growing nuclear weapons stockpile. It is being said that China is making nuclear weapons faster than expected.

Associated Press in Washington: The Pentagon has released a new report on China’s rapidly growing nuclear weapons stockpile. It is being said that China is making nuclear weapons faster than expected.

The report said China currently has more than 500 nuclear weapons and will produce more than 1,000 nuclear weapons by 2030. Perhaps they did this by learning the lessons of the Russia-Ukraine war, as they saw the possibility of a similar conflict with Taiwan.

The report released Thursday warned that China is also developing new intercontinental missiles that could use nuclear warheads to deliver more precise strikes. China is manufacturing this missile to attack America. The report comes a month before US President Joe Biden proposed a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

This meeting will take place on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in San Francisco. The Pentagon report has been submitted to the US Congress. With this in mind, future US security policies will be decided and budgets allocated. A 2022 Pentagon report expects China to produce 1,500 nuclear weapons by 2035. But the latest report says that by 2030, China will prepare more than 1,000 nuclear weapons. This number is more than the previous estimate.

The United States currently has 3,750 active nuclear weapons that can be used at any time. The Asia-Pacific region has been left out of US priorities due to the nearly 20-month war in Ukraine and now the war between Israel and Hamas. I believe that China wants to take advantage of this situation. In this regard he also has the support of Russia.
