Russia's envoy to NATO insisted on Friday that American nuclear weapons stationed in Europe go back to the United States, which "would be a serious contribution to strategic stability and security in Europe."

Moscow "can see no objective reason today for any tactical nuclear weapons to stay in Europe," he said.
