Germany opposes the unilateral withdrawal of nuclear weapons from its territory. This was stated by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas during a visit to Hiroshima, writes Deutsche Welle .
The Minister emphasized that if the weapon should disappear, then everywhere, and not only in Germany. He noted that there is no benefit in transporting nuclear weapons from one state to another: “Broad-based agreements are needed, and not just with individual countries.”
Heiko Maas arrived in Japan on the eve of the two-day summit of the G20 Foreign Ministers in Nagoya. During a visit to Hiroshima, he laid a wreath in memory of the victims of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “The memory of human grief in Hiroshima and Nagasaki should not fade,” said the German Foreign Minister.
Deutsche Welle writes that about 20 US nuclear bombs are now deployed in Germany. Politicians from the Left Party and Soyuz 90 / Greens advocate the withdrawal of weapons.
