To effectively deter aggression and improve collective security in this increasingly complex geopolitical environment, the United States is committed to ensuring a robust nuclear deterrent while also prioritizing responsible stewardship of nuclear weapons, reducing the risks of nuclear war, and preparing for the future of arms control. A safe, secure, and effective nuclear deterrent requires sustaining current capabilities and modernizing U.S. nuclear forces. And arms control, global nonproliferation, and nuclear risk reduction require collaboration with our allies and partners and dialogue with potential adversaries.

On March 13, the Strobe Talbott Center for Security, Strategy, and Technology at Brookings hosted former Brookings scholar Frank Rose, principal deputy administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration, to discuss the steps the U.S. nuclear enterprise is taking to preserve stability and deliver credible deterrence.
