Britain on Tuesday announced plans to increase its stockpile of nuclear weapons, reversing a trend towards disarmament after the end of the Cold War.
A government review of defense, security and foreign policy said emerging threats made it no longer possible to stick to its commitment to reduce warheads.
“The UK will move to an overall nuclear weapon stockpile of no more than 260 warheads,” it added.
The review also mentioned that the terrorist threat in the UK still remains all too real and that they plan to build upon close security partnerships with various countries, some of which include Saudi Arabia and Israel.
