Biden concerned by Russia’s plans to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus

US President has told reporters that, in his opinion, Russia has not yet deployed its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, but he is concerned by those plans.

Joe Biden said that he had not yet familiarized himself with Russia’s official statements on the issue, but expressed concern about the possibility.

“They haven’t done that yet unless something happened while I was on the helicopter”, - the US president said.

When asked to comment on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s earlier remarks on the issue, Biden said: “This is dangerous kind of talk he uses, and it’s worrisome”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on March 25 that, at Minsk’s request, Moscow would deploy its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.
