ICAN: Majority of Germans for nuclear disarmament

The majority of Germans, according to a survey, are for nuclear disarmament. 71 percent are in favour of federal government joining United Nations nuclear Weapons ban, a survey by Institute YouGov on behalf of International campaign to abolish nuclear weapons (ICAN). 13 percent opposed it.
