Source: Die Linke “There is a glimmer of hope at a time when international disarmament efforts are otherwise gloomy: the nuclear weapons ban was ratified by the fiftieth state yesterday,” explains Matthias Höhn, chairman of the subcommittee on disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation for the DIE LINKE parliamentary group . Höhn continues: “This ratification means that the prohibition treaty will come into force in ninety days. This will make January 22nd, 2021 a historic day. With the entry into force, the ban on nuclear weapons will be covered by international law for the first time – a legal loophole will be closed. The treaty prohibits its signatory states from developing, deploying and using nuclear weapons, among other things. It is painful that the federal government is sticking to its resistance to the nuclear weapons ban treaty. She is thus on the wrong side of history. Germany does not belong there. Instead, the federal government must finally sign the prohibition treaty. That also means withdrawing US nuclear weapons from Büchel. “
