The issue of resuming nuclear tests, according to the Washington Post, was discussed during a meeting at the White House on national security issues.
Last week, the Trump administration discussed the possibility of conducting the first nuclear weapons test since 1992. The Washington Post reported this late on Friday, citing a senior administration source and two former White House staffers familiar with the matter.
The topic of conducting a nuclear test came up at a meeting of the heads of the national security administration. The reason reported that Russia and China are still testing low-power nuclear weapons writes the Washington Post.
However, according to sources, the decision to conduct the test was not made. In the end, the meeting decided to take other measures in response to threats from Russia and China, refusing to resume nuclear testing.
The White House has not yet commented on the newspaper’s report.
