More than 700 scientists are asking President Biden to declare that the United States would never strike first using nuclear weapons in a conflict. Right now, countries including the U.S., Russia and China all have thousands of nuclear warheads at their disposal.

  • Daryl Kimball, executive director at the Arms Control Association, said Biden will “very likely” announce in the Nuclear Posture Review an adjustment to U.S. policy along the lines of a no-first-use stance.
  • Kimball said as the U.S., Russia and China improve their nuclear forces, the U.S. needs to avoid engaging in an unconstrained nuclear arms race and should engage in dialogue to freeze or reduce adversary arsenals.
  • He said Biden will need to look closely in the Nuclear Posture Review at the number of weapons needed to deter a nuclear attack.
