In April, Spiegel reported that the German Minister of defense Annegret Kramp-of Karrenbauer pre agreed with Pentagon mark Esper on the acquisition of 30 fighter-bombers F/A-18F production of Boeing that are designed to replace the obsolete Tornado.
This was opposed by the Chairman of the Social democratic party of Germany Rolf Mutzenich. He in an interview with Tagesspiegel urged to withdraw American nuclear weapons from Germany. According to him, nuclear weapons in the country increases security, but rather the contrary. Mutzenich believes that “the time has come for Germany to exclude the location [of nuclear weapons] in the future.”
May 14, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell stated that “reliable nuclear deterrence, as well as aircraft capable of carrying nuclear weapons, are key elements of NATO, which are necessary in the modern world in which Germany pledged to contribute”.
