US Strategic Command Chief Says China’s Nuclear Modernisation ‘Breathtaking’

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US Strategic Command chief Adm. Charles Richard said on Thursday that China’s nuclear and conventional forces modernisation efforts are “breathtaking” and warned that Beijing will soon become a nation “capable of coercion.”

According to Richard’s estimates, China will soon, if not already, become a pacing threat in most categories in space, cyber, nuclear and missile defence, and is posing an even larger threat when paired up with Russia.

In May, US Strategic Command chief called for establishing a dialogue with Russia and China on nuclear armaments as well as on boosting mutual transparency and building confidence to mitigate risks that are rapidly expanding.
