According to the World Atlas, China and the US each have about 200,000 metric tons of uranium reserves.

This means China has the uranium resources to build a thermonuclear arsenal equivalent to the United States. If the US builds thousands of new thermonuclear warheads, China has the raw material to match the US in thermonuclear capability.

If China decides to reclaim Outer Mongolia, it will add another 140,000 metric tons of uranium reserves to the Chinese arsenal.

Outer Mongolia's uranium will enable China to build a larger thermonuclear arsenal than the United States.

China and Outer Mongolia: 340,600 metric tons of uranium reserves
United States: 207,400 metric tons of uranium reserves
