Source: The Left “Foreign Minister Heiko Maas must use his appearance at the UN General Assembly this week to concretely promote disarmament initiatives. So far, Maas’ corresponding announcements are in clear contradiction to the foreign policy of the Federal Government, “explains Heike Hänsel, Deputy Chairman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group. The Foreign Minister continued: “According to the Foreign Minister, disarmament and civilian crisis prevention should be important topics of German UN work. However, in the conflict over the INF Treaty, the German government has not initiated any initiatives to save this important treaty with an international arms control initiative. Instead, it has joined the US position. Also with regard to the Iran nuclear agreement, a fresh start is needed instead to join the US strategy to hold Iran blameless without evidence of attacks on Saudi Arabia. In view of the global nuclear armament, Foreign Minister Maas has to use his speech to declare Germany’s overdue accession to the nuclear weapons ban proposal. This step and the immediate withdrawal of all nuclear weapons from Germany as well as the withdrawal from the nuclear participation of NATO would be a convincing contribution to international security. “
