President Trump’s announcement that he intends to withdraw the US from the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Force (INF) poses a serious threat to diplomatic attempts to curb the deployment of nuclear weapons.
This withdrawal from the INF treaty is part of a wider pattern of the US disengaging from essential international nuclear treaties. Earlier this year, the US withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, removing its support for a treaty which sought to denuclearise Iran.
The British government needs to step up and defend the INF. If you haven’t already, please use our lobby tool to write to the Foreign Secretary to demand that action is taken to save this crucial treaty.
On Wednesday, CND will visit the Foreign Office to deliver your letters. We are trying to collect as many letters as possible before our visit, so please encourage your contacts to sign.
Write to the Foreign Secretary
Together we can make sure that our calls for a safer world are heard.
