Washington DC, August 13: United States President Donald Trump has said on Monday his administration was “learning much” from the failed missile explosion in the northern region of Russia that took place last week reportedly during a test of a nuclear missile.

In a tweet, Trump wrote, “The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia. We have similar, though more advanced, technology. The Russian “Skyfall” explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!”

However, the US officials have yet not publicly spoken about the explosion, occurred near the Nenoksa Missile Test Site that claimed the lives of at least seven people in the incident, which triggered fasten radiation, prompting speculation that it involved some nuclear reactor, according to The Hill reports.

The New York Times has reported the US intelligence officials believe a prototype of the SSC-X-9 Skyfall may be used – a cruise missile, powered by a small reactor that enables it to venture far long distances.

Research institute officials where five experts who were working on the incident, has confirmed on late Sunday a small nuclear reactor had blasted during the test.

The blast took place around a week after the US formally pulled itself out from the 2015 landmark Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty), a decades-old arms accord with Russia credited with assisting in ending the Cold War era.

Washingtonmoscohas blamed Moscow for failing to uphold its commitment under the treaty, but the US president has suggested he would be keen in mediating a new arrangement with Russia and China to halt nuclear proliferation.
