Disarmament agreements : German foreign policy makers want to save with a new proposal to the INF Treaty

foreign policy of the CDU and the SPD want to ban with a new proposal to Russia, and the United States, the risk of a nuclear arms race in Europe. Roderich Kiesewetter, the Chairman of the Union in the foreign Affairs Committee, and the Vice-Chairman of the SPD parliamentary group, Rolf Mützenich, called on Moscow to move its new cruise missiles of the type SSC-8 (Russian designation 9M729) so far to the East, to reach Europe, such as the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung" reported.

In turn, should open a US launch facilities in Europe for Russian inspections, proposed gravel weather and mützenich. This relates to the launch pad for interceptor missiles in Romania and in the future also in Poland. Moscow accuses Washington to break with the use of missile defense systems in Europe against the INF disarmament agreements, to which both sides feel is no longer bound. The U.S. informed Russia on Saturday formally withdrawn from the Treaty, which provides for a notice period of six months.

kiesewetter, a transfer of the Russian cruise missiles should be a "rigorous and continuous verification regime". You could be moved by rail and truck "virtually overnight," back again in the direction of Europe. Therefore, it had to be "to some extent, in addition to each individual weapon permanent observer". Russia has not allowed effective controls so far.

Between the Union and the SPD is characterized by disagreement about the way to deal with Russia. While the SPD rejects a deployment of land-based nuclear weapons in Europe, do not want to Union politician to take this Option off the table. Kiesewetter called it a "mistake", that foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) could be the Option of a nuclear retrofit. "If we are not ready, their own weapons think, Russia will see no reason to keep his weapons verification," he said of the "FAS".

CDU General Secretary Paul Ziemiak accused of leading SPD politicians naivety. "Social Democrats such as Lars Klingbeil, and Stephan said, Because of the stir up with your Statements of distrust of the NATO and play with your naive slogans Putin's hands", Ziemiak the German press Agency in Berlin.

NATO must remain closed, and urged Ziemiak. "Germany must make it clear that all options remain on the table. Russia's violation of the INF Treaty should not be rewarded at the end of the day, naive German foreign policy.“

SPD-Secretary-General Lars Klingbeil called for the Union on Twitter to stop, "to think in the categories of the Cold war". The importance of a self-conscious Signal to the United States and Russia, that Europe refuses to determined an atomic Upgrade, instead on diplomacy and disarmament continues to be rather,"".

On Friday, he had tweeted: "The Union warns our foreign Minister before that, the stationing of new nuclear medium-range missiles in Germany and Europe. This is the wrong way." Lower Saxony's Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD), had declared: "A new arms race must be avoided at all costs. Probably we need a new peace movement.“

foreign Minister Maas warned on Sunday that the world "be without the INF-Treaty dangerous". Nuclear medium-range missiles but should not be "negotiating mass", instead, must now be negotiated, "as we, the arms control into the 21st century. Century save," he wrote on Twitter.
