Members on the May 15 assembly proposed that endeavor a "fast test" of USA nuclear weapons may assist Washington to "negotiate" with each Moscow and Beijing.
"The Trump administration has discussed the issue of whether to conduct the first nuclear test explosion since 1992 and to lift the moratorium on such actions, which has lasted several decades". Both countries have denied this.
The meeting, however, did not conclude with any agreement to conduct a nuclear test.
US President Donald Trump has discussed the possibility of resuming nuclear tests that the government stopped in 1992. "This will have far-reaching consequences for relations with other nuclear powers", the official said. It would also blow up any chance of avoiding a unsafe new nuclear arms race.

European nations have additionally urged Trump to rethink. It also expressed concern about possible nuclear tests by China.
Officials from the National Nuclear Security Administration reportedly disagreed with the idea of nuclear rapid-fire testing.
Trump has yet to extend the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, which is the only current U.S. -Russia arms control agreement. It would complete the erosion of the global arms control framework and plunge us back into a new Cold War.
"During the course of this review it has become abundantly clear that it is no longer in America's interests to remain a party to the Open Skies treaty", said one of the officials, saying Russian Federation violates and implements the treaty in ways that can contribute to military threats against the U.S. and allies.
It is the third arms management pact Trump has abrogated since coming to workplace.
Trump's presidential envoy for arms control, Marshall Billingslea, warned that China is the "midst" of a major buildup of its nuclear arsenal and "intent on building up its nuclear forces and using those forces to try to intimidate the United States and our friends and allies".
An earlier version of this story should have said that about 2,000 nuclear tests have been conducted since 1945, not more than 8,000.
