At the start of 2014 nine states—the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea)—possessed approximately 16 350 nuclear weapons, of which 4150 were deployed or ready for use on short notice (see table 6.1). Roughly 1800 of these are kept in a state of high operational alert.
