NATO’s Turner: Use of Nuclear Weapons of Any Size ‘Highly Strategic’

0

Patrick Turner, NATO’s assistant secretary general for operations, says that the use of nuclear weapons “always is strategic,” no matter how small they might be, during a June 26, 2017, interview with Defense & Aerospace Report Editor Vago Muradian at NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. Turner’s view comes as some analysts worry that Moscow is developing strategies to use tactical nuclear weapons small enough to avoid a strategic nuclear retaliation. Turner also discusses Afghanistan, improving logistics, deterring Russia, and the perennial need to maintain readiness in case any “collective defense situation” emerges in Europe.
