Pentagon fears China's imminent nuclear triad

“In the very near future, China will have a credible nuclear triad, supported by a growing arsenal and weapons systems capable of carrying individually guided multiple warheads”, –  said Charles Richard, head of the US Armed Forces Strategic Command.

The People’s Liberation Army of China is already working on deploying high-precision nuclear weapons delivery systems, he said. In particular, Richard pointed to the CSS-20 missile system, which was put on alert last year.
