At the start of 2011 eight nuclear weapon states possessed more than 20 500 weapons, including more than 5000 that were deployed and ready for use. Russia and the United States have reduced their strategic nuclear forces pursuant to arms control treaty commitments, but many of the withdrawn warheads have been placed in storage and could be redeployed. In 2010 all five legally recognized nuclear weapon states appeared determined to retain their nuclear arsenals and were either modernizing them or had announced plans to do so. India and Pakistan, which are de facto nuclear weapon states, continued to develop new nuclear-capable missile systems and also expanded their military fissile material capacities
