The Kremlin has declared the inadmissibility of symmetrical reductions of nuclear arsenals


About this Peskov said in an interview to the program “Vesti on Saturday”.

“Nuclear disarmament is a conceptual umbrella concept, but it consists of a huge number of nuances about which you spoke. It may not be disproportionate. The composition of the nuclear component in the United States and in our country is different. And therefore, some symmetric cuts are absolutely unacceptable and inappropriate,” — said Peskov.

The press Secretary said that such reductions may lead to violation of nuclear parity and nuclear deterrence.

“It plays a critical role in ensuring global stability and security. Therefore, to link the issue of sanctions and the issue of nuclear reductions are unlikely in the future will be possible with the expert point of view,” explained the spokesman.

Peskov said that President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly Saval that the issue of sanctions is beyond the scope of our agenda.
