China 'Has No Interest' in Joining US-Russia Nuclear Deal

China 'Has No Interest' in Joining US-Russia Nuclear Deal

Monday, 13 May 2019 10:55 AM EDT

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi says his country isn't interested in negotiating a nuclear arms control treaty with the United States and Russia.

Wang was in Russia's Sochi for talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday, a day before U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is set to do the same. U.S. President Donald Trump is withdrawing from a landmark nuclear treaty with Russia and has said he wants a new agreement that includes China as well.

But Wang told reporters after their meeting that China "has no interest" in being part of such a treaty. He said China keeps its arsenal of nuclear weapons at "the minimal level to ensure the defense policies."
