Nuclear Weapons

NATO nuclear forces include strategic weapons provided by the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, along with US ‘sub–strategic’ or ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons deployed in Europe. NATO’s nuclear posture needs to be consistent both with its Member States’ efforts to secure stronger global non-proliferation rules and enforcement, and with moves towards a world free of nuclear weapons. It needs to evolve towards a non-nuclear posture. The primary counter and non-proliferation goal of Alliance policy should be preventing the acquisition and use of nuclear weapons by terrorist groups. NATO should also play a leading role in adapting the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) to become one of the key policing mechanisms for the global elimination of nuclear weapons. This is a summary list of all the content in the site categorised within the Nuclear Weapons policy area.
