At the start of 2016 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 15 395 nuclear weapons, of which 4120 were deployed with operational forces (see table 16.1). Roughly 1800 of these weapons are kept in a state of high operational alert.
