Most of Germany No Longer Wants U.S. Nukes

Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on June 4, 2009

Oliver Meier, the Arms Control Associations International Representative based in Germany, reflected on the German debate and the argument to keep U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe at the conference today.  “All German political parties, except the conservative party, are in favor of withdrawing U.S. nuclear weapons from Europe now,” said Meier. Adding that, “the outcome of Germany’s elections will not fundamentally affect the Foreign Ministry’s position on this.”

Meier also said that “it would be valuable for the European Union (EU) to develop a position on zero.  This should be part of the EU’s dialogue on weapons of mass destruction.”   Immediate steps do not have to go as far as addressing sensitive issues, “like an EU common position on deterrence,” he said, but “there are steps the EU can, and will need, to take in order to take part in this movement towards zero.”
