GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER: US NUKES MUST NOT BE STATIONED IN EUROPE
26 December, 2018
In an interview with German news agency dpa, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that US nuclear missiles must not be stationed in Germany, or anywhere in Europe.
“The deployment of new medium-range missiles would meet with widespread resistance in Germany,” Maas said commenting on the US plans to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia.
“By no means should Europe become the scene of a debate on weapons build-up,” Maas said. “Nuclear armament is certainly the wrong answer.”
“The policy of the 80s does not help to answer the questions of today.”
