NATO has no intention to deploy nuclear weapons to more countries - Stoltenberg
NATO does not plan to deploy nuclear weapons beyond those alliance countries where such weapons have already been present for years, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, speaking at the Reuters Next forum Wednesday.
The top NATO official answered a question whether the alliance is considering sending nuclear weapons to Poland over Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko’s claims, who proposed Moscow to deploy its nuclear weapons on the Belarusian territory.
"We have no plans of stationing any nuclear weapons in other countries than [those that] already have these nuclear weapons as part of our deterrence and that have been there for many, many years," Stoltenberg said.
Meanwhile, he pointed towards the threat, posed, in his opinion, by the new hypersonic weapons being developed by Russia and China.
