"The country that owns the world's largest nuclear arsenal, should take the initiative to follow the trend instead of going against it", China's defense ministry said on Sunday, reports BBC.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ren Guoqiang noted that China is carrying out its military development and policies in that sector with a defensive goal, not with the intention of attacking any country.

In recent years, the United States has reduced its number of nuclear weapons as others, such as Russian Federation and China, have added new nuclear capabilities.

China called for the U.S.to stop a policy it said harkened back to the days of the Soviet Union.

The Pentagon has released its 2018 Nuclear Posture Review, adding nuclear capabilities and updating the United States' current arsenal in order to deter nuclear attacks.

Zarif said the same impulse was driving the United States to undermine the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which President Donald Trump has demanded be renegotiated.

Upgrades to its nuclear arsenal have received less attention, partly because of its small size, estimated by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute at just 270 warheads compared to 6,800 for the US.

In an introductory statement, Mattis said, "We must look reality in the eye and see the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.in no way does this approach lower the nuclear threshold".

In a written statement, Trump on Friday said US strategy is created to make use of nuclear weapons less likely.

The US military wants to revamp its nuclear arsenal and develop new low-yield atomic weapons, largely in response to Russian actions in recent years, the Pentagon said.

North Korea has continued to pursue nuclear weapons development, and Iran retains much of the capacity needed to develop a nuclear weapon within a year of deciding to do so, according to the review.

The ultimatum put pressure on European Union powers - key backers and parties to the 2015 worldwide agreement to curb Iran's nuclear programme - to satisfy Mr Trump, who wants the pact strengthened with a separate agreement.

In the U.S. review of nuclear policy released on Friday, the first one since 2010, the Pentagon said China had pursued new nuclear capabilities and challenged United States interests in the Western Pacific.

In a statement Friday, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons said the Trump nuclear doctrine "deliberately increases" the risk of nuclear weapons use by taking such weapons "out of the silos and onto the battlefield". "The bomb dropped on Hiroshima was 'low-yield, '" the Nobel Peace Prize-winning nongovernmental organization said. "Only that solution will do".
