US Allies Reportedly Urge Biden Not to Drop Possibility of Preemptive Nuke Strike on Russia, China

Major US allies in Europe and Asia are reportedly lobbying the Biden administration not to change America’s policy on the use of nuclear weapons amid concerns that the White House is considering adding a nuclear “no first use” declaration in an ongoing nuclear posture review assessment.

Unnamed officials speaking to Financial Times indicated that the UK, France, Germany, Japan and Australia are among the countries concerned over the proposed change in US policy.

One unnamed official told the newspaper that the administration’s reported mulling of a shift to a ‘sole purpose’ policy – which would limit the use of nukes to deterring a direct attack on the homeland, as a threat to allies. “This would be a huge gift to China and Russia”, the official said.
