Nuclear disarmament and arms control are the keystones of a global security architecture, German Foreign Minister Werner Hoyer said at the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference at the United Nations headquarters on Tuesday.
"The NPT must be preserved and indeed strengthened here in New York," he said on the second day of the Review Conference. "I call on all states parties to act in accordance with their special shared responsibility at this important conference in order to make our world a safer and more peaceful place."
Germany, as well as a handful of other countries in the region, still hosts American nuclear weapons as part of NATO's nuclear sharing policy.
"They no longer serve a military purpose and do not create security."
