Germany and other EU countries will not base US nukes ... your only allies in Europe are Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Romania and the remains of the UK after Scotland leaves .... America has become a threat to EU security
NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said last month that the alliance had no plans to deploy new nuclear missiles in Europe. However, the US' looming pull-out of the INF Treaty with Russia has raised concerns that Washington might seek a nuclear build-up in Europe.
Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday that Berlin would oppose the deployment of new medium-range missiles on the European soil in the event of the INF Treaty's demise.
"Europe must under no circumstances become a platform for an arms race debate", Maas told told DPA news agency as cited by the daily Tiroler Tageszeitung. "The deployment of new medium-range missiles would encounter broad opposition in Germany".
He went on to call nuclear build-up a "wrong answer", saying that Cold War-era tactics would not help sort out today's issues.
