U.S. delays ICBM test-launch in bid to de-escalate Russia nuclear tensions -Breaking


WASHINGTON (Reuters] – On Wednesday, the U.S. military stated that it would delay a test launch of a Minuteman III intercontinental-ballistic missile. The announcement was made in apparent effort to reduce tensions after Russia declared it was putting all its nuclear forces on high alert.

John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesperson (NYSE:), stated that “in an effort to show that we don’t intend in engaging in actions that could be misunderstood and misinterpreted”, the Secretary of Defense directed that Minuteman III intercontinental missile launch test for this week be postponed.

“We didn’t take this decision lightly. We chose to prove that we were a responsible nuclear power.”
