4:36 am – Ischinger warns against withdrawal of US atomic bombs from Germany
Security expert Wolfgang Ischinger warned against questioning German participation in NATO’s nuclear deterrence. In view of the ongoing coalition negotiations between the SPD, the Greens and the FDP, the head of the Munich Security Conference told the German News Agency that a withdrawal of US atomic bombs from Germany would have serious consequences for security in Europe: “We are pulling the rug out from under the Poles in terms of security policy when Germany withdraws from nuclear deterrence.”
Poland could then insist on the planting of atomic bombs on its territory, warned Ischinger. “An active Polish role in NATO’s nuclear deterrence would in turn have consequences in Moscow that I don’t even want to think about,” he said. “I guess the consequences would be catastrophic. NATO would move even closer to Russia in terms of nuclear energy. ” Far too little thought is given in the German discussion.
