Given that progress on arms control and disarmament must take into account the prevailing international security environment, NATO leaders recognized at the 2016 Warsaw Summit that the conditions for further disarmament were unfavourable in light of Russia`s aggressive actions and military rearmament in recent years. At the NATO summit in Brussels in 2018, leaders reaffirmed NATO`s long-standing commitment to nuclear deterrence, saying that “as long as there are nuclear weapons, NATO will remain a nuclear alliance.” The 2010 Lisbon Summit conducted the Deterrence and Defence Review (DDPR) work in Den Weg, endorsed by Allied Heads of State and Government at the NATO Summit in Chicago in May 2012. The DDPR stressed that the fundamental objective of the Alliance`s nuclear forces is deterrence, which is essentially a political function. As the alliance focuses on maintaining effective deterrence, political control over nuclear weapons will be maintained in all circumstances and nuclear planning and consultation within the Alliance will be in line with political guidance. And Professor Alexander Mattelaer, from the Belgian Egmont Institute, recalled that NATO`s nuclear division was essential to prevent some European allies – including Germany – from acquiring their own nuclear deterrent The DGAP asked European leaders about Germany`s role in nuclear deterrence in Europe. These experts, each representing an EU member or an important partner, answered three outstanding questions. Historically, common systems for carrying nuclear weapons were not limited to bombs. Greece used Nike Hercules missiles and A-7 Corsair II fighter jets. Canada had Bomarc nuclear anti-aircraft missiles, Honest John surface-to-surface missiles and nuclear air-to-air engineering and tactical atomic bombs for the CF-104 fighter.

[9] Medium-range ballistic missiles were sent to Britain with RAF crews.

[10] [11] An advanced version of the nuclear division, NATO`s multilateral force, was a plan to equip nato waterships of member states with Polaris UGM-27 missiles, but the UK purchased the Polaris missiles and used its own warheads, and the plan to equip NATO flood ships was abandoned. [12] After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the types of nuclear weapons common within NATO were reduced to tactical nuclear bombs used by Dual-Capable Aircraft (DCA). [3] According to press reports, NATO`s Eastern European countries opposed the withdrawal of common nuclear bombs from Europe, fearing that it would show a weakening of the United States. . . .
