The Alliance has no plans to expand the circle of allies with nuclear weapons. This was stated by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg during a briefing with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

"There are no plans to expand the nuclear sharing arrangements. There are also no plans to deploy nuclear weapons in any additional NATO countries," Stoltenberg answered a question from Polish media representatives.

The question is related to Polish President Andrzej Duda's statement that Poland is ready to deploy NATO nuclear weapons on its territory. However, the Polish leader admitted that it is possible only in case of a joint decision by NATO allies.

Duda also said that this issue is the subject of Polish-American negotiations. According to him, the Polish president has already spoken with the US leadership on this topic several times.

''There are no plans for this'': Stoltenberg on the possible deployment of nuclear weapons in Poland

Currently, only three NATO members possess nuclear weapons. These are the United States, the United Kingdom, and France; the United States has the largest nuclear capability.

Of these NATO nuclear powers, only the United States has provided nuclear weapons for sharing with other countries in the bloc. These are five other countries: Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey.

As reported earlier, Duda agreed with the words of his colleague Volodymyr Zelenskyy that Russia plans to attack NATO in 2026-2027 and is doubling the pace of transition to a military economy for this purpose. The Polish president called on the Alliance to prepare for this by increasing defense spending.

Meanwhile, back in June 2023, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin confirmed that Russia had sent tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, which borders Ukraine and Poland.
