Motion adopted by the Dutch Parliament to end the nuclear task of the Netherlands by 2023 | Pressenza

A motion proposed by member of parliament Van Dijk (SP) was adopted in which the Parliament agreed that the successor to the F-16 fighter jet may not have a nuclear role.

Krista van Velzen, nuclear disarmament campaigner at IKV Pax Christi said: “Now the Joint Strike Fighter may not be used to carry and deploy nuclear weapons. This means that within the next 10 years, when the last F-16 has been replaced, the Netherlands will have no alternative but to bid farewell to the American weapons of mass destruction now stationed at Volkel”. Jan Gruiters, general director at IKV Pax Christi said “This is an historic development of which the Netherlands can be proud. Of course, Foreign Minister Timmermans doesn’t have to wait another decade to denuclearize the Netherlands. He can decide now to negotiate the return of these nuclear weapons directly with the US”.
