Countries That Increased Their Nuke Weapons In 2017


America’s 2018 Nuclear Posture Review dictated U.S. nuclear policy makers to return as a great power and suggested the development of two new nuclear weapons in addition to other expensive nuclear modernisation programs.

But these were not the only events that impacted the global nuclear balance. A report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute shows that the U.S. and Russia decreased the number of nuclear warheads in their stockpiles in 2017, however smaller nuclear powers like China, India, North Korea and Pakistan took steps to expand their arsenals.

According to the report China increased its total number of warheads by 10, from 270 to 280. India was believed to have between 120 to 130 warheads in 2017, and is estimated to have added 10 more warheads as well, for a 2018 total between 130 and 140.   Read More
