New Sipri report: more than 13,000 nuclear warheads

For decades, there are always political efforts to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world - some even dream that the world could be a place without the atomic bombs. However, the States are currently still far away: the World's more than 13,000 nuclear warheads are still in camp in the arsenals of the nuclear powers.Although the total number of nuclear weapons in the past year, more back -to 3.5 per cent, as from the on Monday published the annual report of the Stockholm peace research Institute Sipri shows. Nevertheless, all of the atom had powers to modernise their nuclear weapons, according to the peace researcher.

The Sipri researchers Shannon Kile said, it appears that all nine nuclear weapons States wanted to hold on to their arsenals for an indefinite period of time. In fact, some of the weapons systems that were being developed would have an expected life up to the eighties of this century.

in the World, there was the beginning of 2020, an estimated total of 13.400 nuclear warheads. The amount corresponds to one-fifth of the Arsenalsvon about 70,000, about the nuclear forces at peak times of the Cold war in the mid-eighties, has had. The two super-powers, this is the last time, America and Russia,reduce your quota ever since. Still, more than 90 percent of all nuclear warheads are in their possession. The United States is, therefore, about 5800 warheads, Russia about 6375.
