Ask your MP to sign EDM 1744 on US withdrawal from INF treaty

MPs have tabled Early Day Motion 1744 in response to President Trump's decision to pull the USA out of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). 

Full text: "That this House is deeply concerned by the announcement on 20 October 2018 by the US President of the decision to withdraw the US from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF); notes that withdrawal from the INF will serve to undermine international attempts to curb nuclear proliferation; further notes that this move will destabilise global and specifically, European security; commends those countries, including France and Germany, who have released statements criticising the move; and calls on the Government to use its influence on Washington to urge the US to deal with any concerns it may have over treaty compliance through diplomatic means and to uphold its commitments to the treaty."
