China expands its nuclear capabilities - US accuses

U.S. scientists say China is expanding its storage capacity for nuclear missiles.

According to the US Scientific Association, a satellite nuclear missile base is being developed in Xinjiang.

U.S. defense officials have expressed concern over China’s nuclear program.

It is said to be the second new missile base under construction in western China.

The site also has underground facilities for storing and using about 110 missiles.

The Washington Post previously reported that there were 120 pits used for storing missiles in the desert area of ​​Gansu Province.

The Pentagon announced in 2020 that China plans to double its nuclear arsenal from a low base.

It is noteworthy that China has not yet taken part in the talks as the US and Russia prepare for arms control talks.
