"It is time for the alliance to change course and do more to create the conditions necessary for a world without nuclear weapons."
Des Browne and Volker RĂ¼he


More than 40 former European leaders are calling on NATO members, meeting in Chicago this weekend for the 2012 NATO Summit, to take concrete steps toward changing the nuclear status quo. The leaders' statement, released today by the European Leadership Network, acknowledges that "so far, the signs do not look good" for changes based on the results of the DDPR. However, the leaders strongly encourage NATO members to begin work on a strategy to reduce nuclear risks in Europe while strengthening NATO’s ability to respond to today's threats.
