Beijing is considering a significant expansion and diversification of its nuclear forces. In recent years, China has been building a nuclear triad that includes land, sea and air forces. The construction of hundreds of new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) silos and the development of new nuclear weapons have raised serious concerns about the country’s nuclear doctrine.
