MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Corbyn said, when asked if Labour would cancel the Trident nuclear program, that his party, if it won the upcoming general election, would have the strategic defense review.
"I've made clear my views on nuclear weapons. I've made clear that there would be no first use of it. I've made clear that any use of nuclear weapons is disaster for the whole world," Corbyn told the BBC broadcaster.
The Trident nuclear program includes four submarines armed with Trident II D-5 ballistic missiles. Last year, the House of Commons voted to build a new generation of submarines. The submarines are based at Clyde Naval Base not far from the Scottish city of Glasgow.
The UK snap election is scheduled for June 8.
