Prominent Europeans call for change in NATO nuclear policies

Share

Prominent European statespeople who form a sub-group of the European Leaders Network have released a letter calling on NATO to make "disarmament a core element of its approach to providing security." In their letter, they encourage the Alliance to "review its entire nuclear policy and posture with a view to facilitating progress in arms control, in a manner consistent with effective burden sharing and alliance cohesion, effective deterrence and a demonstrable commitment to collective defence."

Among the 36 signatories are former heads of state, defense and foreign secretaries, military and international organization leaders and parliamentarians from countries including Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Norway, The Netherlands, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.

The European Leaders Network has posted the letter and list of signatories on its website:
