Washington: The United States is worried that draft constitutional reforms in Belarus could lead to the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in the country, a senior State Department official told reporters Tuesday.

Joint Russia-Belarus military exercises announced Tuesday by Minsk as Russian troops arrived in the country were “beyond normal,” and could preview a permanent Russian military presence involving both conventional and nuclear forces, the official said.
