UFOs have disabled US nuclear weapons facilities amid fears China or Russia could control the "foreign adversarial technology", an ex-intelligence officer has claimed.
Luis Elizondo says he was the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), a secretive Pentagon unit that reportedly studied UFOs, between 2007 and 2012.
The expert recently claimed the US government is gearing up to reveal the "reality" of UFOs.
He told a press conference: "I think for me the most concerning thing are those incidents that involve our nuclear equities.
"There seems to be a very distinct congruency between UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), associated UAP activity and and our nuclear technology.
“Whether it be propulsion or weapon systems or whatnot. And that’s concerning to the point where we’ve actually had some of our nuclear capabilities disabled by these things," he said, reports the New York Post.
"So, you know, again, let’s put this into context of foreign adversarial technology if Russia or China had the ability to disable our nuclear strike capability or defence capability.”
He later told NBC news: “UAPs have an active interest in our nuclear technology.
“(UAPs) have in the past interfered with some of our nuclear capabilities. That’s fact.”
It comes after another expert claimed a UFO report signed off by US president Donald Trump just before he was replaced by Joe Biden could reveal super-smart aliens are visiting us in peace.

Professor Daniel Drezner said so days after the US former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed the Pentagon files included declassified intelligence of aircraft "that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom".
The international politics expert at Tufts University last month wrote in the Washington Post: "Does this evidence point toward the prospect of extraterrestrial observation of our planet? If so, how should we feel about that?
"I am not going to speculate on the first question beyond noting that if Harvard astrophysicists are making that suggestion about interstellar phenomena, perhaps we need at least to consider the possibility that these UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) might also be extraterrestrial in origin."

He said top scientists including the late professor Stephen Hawking have warned against contacting aliens or of catastrophic consequences for humans if they arrived on Earth.
But said "it might be better for U.S. national security if these UAPs turn out to be ETs" than if they belonged to Russia or China.
He added: "I get the concern from physicists that technologically advanced extraterrestrials might behave as powerful human civilizations have in the past.

"The assumption is that powerful, technologically advanced civilizations will act in a destructive manner.
"That is possible, but perhaps civilizations that reward destructive entrepreneurship are less likely to generate the technological wherewithal for interstellar travel.
"And if those UAPs are ETs, maybe there is more hope for interstellar relations than either scientists or science fiction envision."
Police lieutenant turned UFO investigator Tim McMillan said mystery surrounds why the Senate Select Intelligence Committee (SSIC) asked Mr Trump to sign off for the report so urgently.
