And now Russia



In his State of the Union address in January, U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to modernise U.S. nuclear arsenal. Now, Russia has unveiled its range of “invincible nuclear weapons” (“Putin unveils new nuclear weapons”, March 2).

All this shows that the Non-Proliferation Treaty is almost dead. The UN should check this worrying trend now.
