Putin says Trump's statement on nuclear weapons no surprise

Reuters , Friday 23 Dec 2016

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that a statement by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump about the need for the United States to boost its nuclear capabilities was not a surprise and was normal.

Trump called for an expansion of the United States' nuclear capabilities on Thursday, in a tweet that alarmed non-proliferation experts who said that boosting the U.S. arsenal could fuel global tensions.
