German Foreign Minister complains that “nuclear disarmament stagnates”

On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the 1945 atomic bombing of the Japanese city of Hiroshima by the United States, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned against a new round of the nuclear arms race.

According to DW, on Wednesday evening, August 5, in Berlin, the head of the German Foreign Ministry warned that “nuclear disarmament has stalled, and new technologies are leading to dangerous imbalances”.

“Today North Korea, through possible development of nuclear weapons, is challenging the entire world community. In this regard, there is a need for a new impetus for arms control and nuclear disarmament. The world should never forget what happened in Hiroshima, and a few days later in Nagasaki, and why it happened”, – Maas said.
