Cluster bombs: NATO against Washington

Some countries said no to the US aim to send banned weapons to Ukraine

The governments of Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Spain have recently expressed their position against the sending of cluster bombs to Ukraine by the United States. The Amnesty International organization recalled that these weapons are banned in 123 countries that have signed the United Nations Convention, because "they pose a serious threat to civilian lives long after the conflict has ended". 

Madrid "has a firm commitment that certain types of weapons and bombs cannot be sent to Ukraine". "No to cluster bombs and yes to the legitimate defense of Ukraine which we do not want to be ensured by cluster bombs", said Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is on the same line.

It was echoed by the New Zealand premier, Chris Hipkins, who denounced that such weapons are "indiscriminate and cause immense damage to innocent people, potentially, and can also have long-lasting effects". Position reaffirmed by the government of Canada, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: "We seriously consider our obligations under the Convention to encourage its universal adoption" and above all to protect children.
