Pentagon: Our contribution to NATO’s nuclear deterrent does not contradict our obligations under the NPT


“We fully fulfill our obligations in accordance with the NPT. Our contribution to the deployment and nuclear deterrence capabilities of NATO do not contradict our obligations under the NPT, ”the newspaper quotes him. "Sight".

Sowers noted that even during the signing of the treaty almost 50 years ago, the Pentagon voiced its interpretation of the NPT both to the senate of the US Congress and the USSR.

“The treaty was ratified based on the understanding of these interpretations. The NATO Alliance stated that it would remain a nuclear alliance as long as nuclear weapons existed. The US is taking prudent measures to maintain its nuclear forces and maintain their safety and effectiveness, although we are achieving peace and security in a world without nuclear weapons. In the next decade, we plan to replace the aging delivery platforms, as the Russian Federation is currently doing, ”he stressed.

It is worth noting that earlier the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Anatoly Antonov, stated that the main purpose of the Washington tests was to test the possibilities of using NATO aircraft with atomic bombs deployed in Europe.

“A special feature of the test was the fact that the F-15E fighter bomber was used as a carrier of nuclear weapons. This suggests that the test took place in order to test the possibility of using the B61-12 atomic bomb from NATO fighter-bomber deployed in Europe, ”he stressed.

    I don’t understand that they made a noise, well, they threw a blank from an airplane, there wasn’t any real use of charge, in the 50-60s, both we and the Americans were kidding us not childishly, as much as 50 megatons flickered.

      Here an airplane with a unified nuclear bomb flies up to the borders of Russia and releases into free flight, and it by inertia falls into the Kaliningrad, Leningrad, Murmansk region. In vain, chtoli for such pepelats readiness number once declared is not even for duty air defense divisions.
      So our right howl raised and it is necessary to answer

          You are a little wrong. It's not that nothing exploded (sticking a warhead there is not tricky), but the fact that they are perfecting the carriers. Although we also seem not to stand still, but apparently we are behind the bombs for aircraft, otherwise we would not have raised such a rustle.

    It turns out that nuclear weapons will have all NATO countries. This cannot be allowed.

    It’s not good that all this arabic rattling of weapons. And we cannot yet answer with dignity to all this disgrace, sadly. Is there a boat to float next to the Statue of Liberty?

    o5 "Iron" American logic. NATO is a nuclear alliance, so we place where we want, without breaking anything. Well, Duc and we can create a military alliance with Nicaragua and also "legally" place am

    Well, it's time to put a bomb on our ICBMs instead of a nuclear head, although I seem to hear they want to put the current thing on the new Sarmatian.

    Calm down friends, this is all a test of nerves and lice. In fact, there will be no nuclear war against Russia from the United States. This is the last thing they will do when we squeeze them in Texas. But let mongrel on us, that’s yes. In the end, the West will trample on us, only with conventional weapons, and will get it in the teeth. I think that they can give up for slaughter Europe, having fought tactical nuclear weapons, but again they will protect their lying in the states. Therefore, they will be buzzing that not the Americans used nuclear weapons.

    This would not contradict all the agreements if you had a test (real) in your Elastone park in the vent of a super volcano! How many problems would be solved!

    90 percent of young Japanese people think that the USSR dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Not the carriers, but the ammunition itself. Carriers remain F-15E and F-22. Well, plus strategic bombers

    I understand that this is certainly patriotic, but the point is that the Americans TOTALLY NOT VIOLATED ANYTHING. They experienced a ballistic corps. Tested at their test site, on their own territory. What contracts did they violate ??? Could you tell???

    Howling because of what? Did an American plane break our airspace? Or howling because the Americans on his landfill conducted a test discharge of the new building ??? Let’s then raise a howl for everyone. The Americans tested the 60-charge store for the M-16 - we will raise the howl, the new hanging tanks to the helicopter - too. Maybe it’s still worth behaving like adults, and not like third-graders reacting to everything ??

    Nothing happens. Learning and learning does not mean dissemination. Have we taught the entire Warsaw Treaty the use of such weapons? Does this mean that all countries of the Treaty would have it ??
