US-Germany Relations: Remove Nuclear Weapons from German Soil



US-Germany Relations: The American nuclear weapons placed in Germany must be taken out of the country, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told German news agency during a visit to New York. According to him, this should be the outcome of a new dialogue on disarmament.

Earlier, with the same appeal, the leader of the Social Democratic Party, Martin Schultz, spoke. “I am convinced that it is necessary to talk again about arms control and disarmament, and I, therefore, consider Martin Schultz’s statements to be correct that in the final analysis, we should talk about the withdrawal of nuclear weapons from our country,” Gabriel said.

As the DPA recalls, according to unconfirmed reports, up to 20 US nuclear warheads have been deployed at the airbase near the village of Büchel since the Cold War. In March 2010, the Bundestag deputies gave the government a majority of votes to negotiate with Washington on the export of American nuclear weapons from the territory of Germany. However, the then Cabinet of Ministers of the Federal Republic of Germany announced that it would not take any unilateral actions without an agreement with NATO partners.

Drift in US-Germany Relations

US President Donald Trump targetted Germany over trade and defence pacts, presenting up a dispute with German Chancellor Angela Merkel that jeopardizes a trans-Atlantic bond which is fundamental to US-Germany Relations.

“We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military,” the US President posted on Twitter. “This will change.”

Donald Trump tried doing some damage control via White House spokesman Sean Spicer who said Mr Trump views Germany as a vital ally and gets along very well with Mrs Merkel.”They get along very well. He has a lot of respect for her … And he views not just Germany but the rest of Europe as an important American ally,” Mr Spicer said

“They get along very well. He has a lot of respect for her … And he views not just Germany but the rest of Europe as an important American ally,” Mr Spicer said
