China is rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal, says Pentagon

The Pentagon said Wednesday that China is rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal and could have 1,000 nuclear warheads by 2030.

China’s growing arsenal is still dwarfed by the United States and Russia who own the lion’s share of the world’s nuclear weapons. The American stockpile stands at approximately 3,750 nuclear warheads.

The report added that China possesses “a range of options for military campaigns against Taiwan,” including potential air and maritime blockades to a full-scale amphibious invasion.
