Answering the question of when Germany will get rid of the US nuclear weapons on its territory, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas noted that “this will not happen during the current legislative period.”
The German authorities would like Russia and the United States to discuss the issue of disarmament at the summit of Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden in Geneva. As German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday, answering questions from German parliamentarians in the Bundestag, the German side conveyed its wishes to the Americans.
“In general, we would like, and we have said this to our American partners – if it comes to the Putin-Biden summit – to include the topic of disarmament in the agenda,” he said.
