U.S. official says Biden administration eyeing nuclear declaratory policy

Kyodo News reported on Sunday that Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Bonnie Jenkins said in a recent written interview with the wire service that the Biden administration is considering including a “declaratory policy” in its nuclear posture review examining the role of nuclear weapons. Kyodo speculated that the administration may declare the “sole purpose” of U.S. nuclear forces to reduce the role of nuclear arms to deter or respond to nuclear attacks. Kyodo said the interview was held in preparation for the UN conference on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty slated for January.
