China bristles against the claims of the United States, that it should participate in negotiations on nuclear disarmament. The people's Republic have a much smaller nuclear Arsenal than Russia and the United States, said the Director for disarmament in the Chinese foreign Ministry, Fu Cong, on Wednesday. The Americans had asked China just to have an excuse to leave the talks on a successor agreement for the "New Start"agreement with Russia fail.
The contract from the year 2010 for the reduction of the nuclear long-range missiles is the last remaining agreement between the United States and Russia that limits the arsenals of the two major nuclear powers. He runs out in February.
Washington had tried in the spring to give initially the impression that China was ready, in a trilateral disarmament talks with Russia to enter.When it came in June, then a bilateral us-Russian Meeting in Vienna, posted the American negotiator, Marshall Billingslea, a picture of the negotiating table, the Chinese flags were placed, as if a Chinese Delegation had been expected. Fu commented on Twitter that it was a strange scene. China had never promised to attend.
Billingslea reiterated recently, each new contract should also contain requirements for China. The international community will put the people's Republic of, hopefully, to pressure.
Fu called America approach unrealistic.First, the United States and Russia should disarm, then China and other small nuclear could contribute forces. "If the United States declare that they will disarm on the Chinese, China would be to participate in happy the next day," said Fu. "But in fact, we know that this will not happen."Updated Date: 08 July 2020, 17:20
