This Just in From the “Things one is Obliged to Say in Public Department”

In other words: ritual parroting.

Some countries like Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and Norway believe that “these weapons have no military purpose.” However, given their proximity to Iran and Russia, Turkey and the Baltic countries are staunchly opposed to any withdrawal.
Staunch opposition presumably because... they have no purpose ?
