To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of (1) the effect of the US nuclear posture review plans to "strengthen the integration of nuclear and non-nuclear military planning", and (2) how those plans will affect UK nuclear planning with NATO.
20 March 2018
The UK welcomes the recent US Nuclear Posture Review which is largely a continuation of current policy, whilst recognising the reality of the changed security environment since the last review in 2010. Crucially, it reaffirms the continued US commitment to Euro-Atlantic security through NATO. The US review does not affect the UK's continued nuclear deterrent commitment to NATO, nor does it impact on our support to NATO's planning processes.
