Martin Schulz wants US nuclear weapons out of Germany | POLITICO

By Cynthia Kroet

Martin Schulz, the leader of the German Social Democrats (SPD), on Tuesday said that if he wins next month’s election he will ask the U.S. to withdraw its nuclear weapons from Germany.

“As chancellor, I will commit Germany to having the nuclear weapons stationed here withdrawn from our country,” Schulz pledged at a campaign rally in the southwestern city of Trier, weeks before the vote on September 24.

There are believed to be about 20 U.S. nuclear warheads at a military base in Büchel, western Germany.
