US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday that unprecedented limits being placed on the US nuclear arsenal will not weaken US defenses and will send a "strong message" to Iran and North Korea to "play by the rules."

Under the plan, the United States would narrow the circumstances under which a nuclear weapon would be used. The new policy would not apply to states like North Korea and Iran because of their refusal to cooperate with the international community on nonproliferation standards.

"All options are on the table when it comes to countries in that category," Gates said.
