Vienna, August 14, Xinhua News Agency reported that Ambassador Wang Qun, permanent representative of China to the United Nations and other international organizations in Vienna, answered a reporter’s question on the “trilateral arms control talks” made by US Secretary of state pompeio during his visit to Vienna on August 14. He said that pompeio has involved China in the trilateral negotiations, subverting the international consensus on nuclear disarmament, and that China is abiding by the basis of the internationally recognized consensus on nuclear disarmament On the basis of participation in the relevant process, never absent.
at a joint press conference with Austrian foreign minister schallenberg on the 14th, pompeio said that China was obviously absent from the important negotiation of “trilateral arms control negotiations between China, the United States and Russia”, and urged China to participate.
Wang Qun said that the international community has a clear consensus on what to do with global nuclear disarmament, and accordingly a series of international legal instruments have been formed, which clearly stipulates that the United States and Russia have the largest nuclear arsenals in the world and bear special and priority responsibilities for nuclear disarmament, and should further make substantial and substantial progress in a verifiable, irreversible and legally binding manner A qualitative reduction of its nuclear arsenals. When conditions are ripe, other nuclear weapon states will join the multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiation process. The maintenance of global strategic stability and world peace over the past 70 years is inseparable from the above-mentioned international consensus and the international arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation system.
Wang Qun said that China does not participate in the “trilateral arms control negotiations”, but never evades its international obligations on nuclear disarmament. China has always been a participant, supporter and defender of the existing international arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation mechanism and the post-war international system. However, we can only participate in the relevant process on the basis of abiding by the internationally recognized consensus on nuclear disarmament. We will never be absent from what we have done.
Wang Qun said that pompeio’s wishful thinking and insistence on involving China in the trilateral negotiations has subverted the international consensus on nuclear disarmament, global strategic stability and the post-war international order. We urge the US side to regain mutual trust in the bilateral nuclear disarmament between the United States and Russia, conduct serious negotiations with the Russian side, and stop looking for excuses for further “withdrawal” and “breaking the treaty”.
