    Britain’s defense secretary says London may use nuclear weapons against any enemies, even if the UK is not under attack. Michael Fallon was speaking to British media. Fallon however refused to clarify the circumstances under which the country would use its nuclear deterrent. He said possessing nuclear arms makes his country immune to potential military threats. Fallon’s comments come after Britain’s Conservative party started campaigning for Britain’s snap general elections.
