US not preparing any nuclear tests in Nevada

US not preparing any nuclear tests in Nevada

Washington, Dec 2 (UNI) The United States is not preparing any nuclear tests at the Nevada National Security Site despite Russia's claims to the contrary, US National Nuclear Security Administration chief Jill Hruby said, adding that Washington had "nothing to hide" with regard to its experiments at the location.
On October 10, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said there were signs of the US preparing or at least having prepared "to the last" nuclear tests in Nevada. On October 18, the US conducted an explosive underground experiment at the site where it had previously tested nuclear weapons, but denied it was a nuclear test. The experiment came hours after the Russian lower house passed a bill revoking the ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).
"We need to be clearer about what we're doing because we have nothing to hide and we're not preparing for an underground [nuclear explosive] test [at the Nevada site]," Hruby said in an interview with the Arms Control Association, published on Friday.
