Russia is considering the possibility of revealing data on its nuclear stockpiles, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.
Last week, the U.S. Defense Ministry for the first time revealed top-secret data on its nuclear arsenals, saying the country had a total of 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile.
"After the new arms reduction treaty signed in Prague on April 8 by the Russian and U.S. presidents comes into force, we will also be able to consider practically the issue of publishing the total amount of deployed strategic carriers and... warheads," Andrei Nesterenko said.
