Watch the Nuclear Posture Review

By Dan Drollette Jr, February 2, 2018

If you missed the press conference where the new Nuclear Posture Review was rolled out earlier on Friday February 2, you can watch a recording of the event at the Pentagon.

After the rollout, acting Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance Anita E. Friedt, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy John C. Rood, and Acting Undersecretary for Nuclear Security and National Nuclear Security Administration Administrator Steve Erhart answered questions from reporters.
