On January 27, the US head of state ordered US Secretary of Defense James Mattis to assess the US nuclear potential against modern threats. According to the US president’s order, the minister had to launch a nuclear potential reassessment in order to determine how modern, reliable and flexible the US nuclear deterrents are and whether they can duly counter the threats of the 21th century and give confidence to allies. On April 18, Mattis ordered to start the assessment procedure.
The last report on the country’s nuclear potential was prepared under the Barack Obama administration back in 2010.
