China is Avoiding Bilateral Nuclear Talks with U.S.

In line with Washington’s efforts to reduce nuclear arms stockpiles, the U.S. disarmament ambassador Robert Wood said a U.N. conference on disarmament on Tuesday that People’s Republic of China is avoiding bilateral talks with the United States on nuclear weapons, Reuters reports.

Describing China’s position as unfortunate, Wood said that despite the China’s dramatic nuclear arsenal build-up it unfortunately still resisting discussion regarding nuclear risk reduction with the US and is unwilling to establish discussions on expert level.

The strategic nuclear stability will be on the agenda of the conference.

New START arms control treaty was previously extended for five years, preserving the last treaty limiting deployments of the world’s two largest strategic nuclear arsenals.

Meanwhile, U.S. President Joe Biden has agreed to discuss with Russian President Putin strategic stability discussions on a range of arms control and emerging security issues .
