The review of U.S. nuclear policy published Friday has riled Russia, which viewed the document as confrontational, and raised fears that it could increase the risk of miscalculation between the two world powers.Zarif said the same impulse was driving the United States to undermine the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which President Donald Trump has demanded be renegotiated.By expanding its own low-yield nuclear capability, the United States would deter Russia from using nuclear weapons, according to American officials.In a written statement, Trump Friday said U.S. strategy is designed to make use of nuclear weapons less likely.
