European countries shouldn’t push forward with developing their own unmanned armed drones amid calls to develop robotic weapons, according to an expert on unmanned weapons systems.

Doctor J├╝rgen Altmann, a physicist and vice chair of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control (ICRAC) says that the “new round in the international arms race” poses “different dangers for international stability.” Dr Altmann was quoted in The Local, saying:

The comments follow an announcement that Germany, Italy and France would work together to develop military surveillance drones by 2025, with leaders noting they could also be armed with weapons.
