Clinton Says Nukes Should Stay in Europe

Thursday, April 22, 2010

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says NATO should hold off on removing the last U.S. nuclear weapons from Europe.

According to The New York Times, the Obama administration was not opposed to cuts in battlefield weapons, including bombs and short-range missiles locked in underground vaults on air bases in five NATO countries. She told a NATO meeting that any reduction should not be done unilaterally, but should be part of a negotiated deal with Russia.

Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Norway jointly petitioned NATO to remove the tactical weapons from Europe.
