WASHINGTON, February 8. /TASS/. The United States plans to review its nuclear posture in the coming spring, Air Force Chief of Staff General David Goldfein told reporters at a Defense Writers Group breakfast.
Commenting on the matters related to the US nuclear weapons, he said:
"I fully anticipate that we will have a nuclear posture review this spring and I’m actually eager to have that dialogue because it’s time for us to have a <...> fresh look at the nuclear enterprise that results in a new strategic guidance, policy guidance to the Department [of Defense] on where the Administration wants us to go."
"I do believe we are going to have discussions about munitions. I do believe we are going to have discussions about yields. I do believe we are going to have discussions about numbers of munitions required," Goldfein added.
At the same time, he said there was a hope "to expand that dialogue into a broader discussion about deterrence in the 21 century."
The previous nuclear doctrine was developed by the Obama administration, its unclassified part was made public in April 2010.
