Switzerland: US training European states to use nukes against Russia — Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the United States is training non-nuclear powers on how to use tactical nuclear weapons against Russia, speaking at the UN Conference on Disarmament in Geneva on Wednesday. «Non-nuclear NATO member states are discussing the use of US non-strategic nuclear weapons and are engaged in the development of relevant skills, thus violating the non... Еще-proliferation treaty. It should be clear to everyone that the US military is preparing the armed forces of European countries for the use of tactical nuclear weapons against the Russian Federation,» Lavrov noted. The Russian foreign minister also expressed concern about «the significant change in US attitudes in the context of their renewed nuclear strategy, which calls for an enhanced role for nuclear weapons, including the development and the deployment of so-called low-yield weapons that leads to lowering the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons.» Speaking on chemical disarmament, Lavrov said that Russia has «completely destroyed its storage of chemical warfare agents» whereas the US currently «preserves the world's largest arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, and the prospects for its elimination remains vague.»
