Understandable. Countries with hundreds of $millions in a type of weapon aren't going to give them up.

United States, Russia, Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, North Korea should all be pressured to verify-ably reduce their nuke counts ... say 50% over the next 10 yrs.

Trust, but verify.

https://www.armscontrol.org/factsheets/Nuclearweaponswhohaswhat has a graphic for estimated weapon counts.

Britain and the US are planning to replace some naval weapon systems in the next 20 yrs.

Let there be praise for someone who wants to extend the agreement of nuclear deal.

Let there be greater praise and respect for people who sincerely implement whatever deal reached..
