Fact Sheet – Nuclear Arsenals of the U.S., Russia, and China

share this

New START, the last remaining nuclear arms control treaty between the U.S. and Russia, is set to expire in February 2021. The built-in option to extend the treaty for 5 years has been delayed while the U.S. has advocated for integrating China into New START or a replacement treaty. The U.S., Russia, and China all possess advanced nuclear arsenals. However, a major difference in these arsenals is the number of warheads possessed by the U.S. and Russia relative to China. This fact sheet explores the basic statistics behind each country’s nuclear capabilities and explores the prospects of Chinese inclusion in a trilateral nuclear agreement with Russia and the United States.
