Summary The author argues that it is unlikely that a No First Use (NFU) declaration policy from the US will lead to disarmament in Northeast Asia. He rather proposes that “Force asymmetries, (…) and the pursuit of a deterrent architecture based on entanglement between nuclear, conventional, cyber, and space domains, as well as the rise of emerging technologies that influence the modality of strategic stability, will have a significant impact on deterrence and arms control.”
