US “Not to Deploy” Nuclear Weapons in Germany. Contradictory Report from Washington

Region: ,

The US has no intentions to deploy new nuclear weapons in Germany, Shelley Laver, deputy director of public affairs for the US National Nuclear Security Administration claimed.

Laver confirmed that according to Washington’s plans, the large-scale production of B61-12 will be started not until 2020 fiscal year. The articles referring to warheads deployment in Europe by the end of this year are not accurate, as she said.

The German media reported Tuesday that the US intended to equip the German Tornado fighter aircraft with 20 B61-12 nuclear bombs.
