China has refused to continue negotiations with the United States on nuclear weapons


This was announced by the official representative of the US State Department in a comment to the Semafor portal.

According to the representative of the State Department, in November 2023, China refused to negotiate with the United States on arms control and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. China refused the next meeting and did not give a meaningful answer to the options presented by the American side.

According to the representative of Washington, it was about improving communication between the countries, a notification system for test launches of ballistic missiles and efforts to reduce tension in space, the Semafor portal reports.

Liu Pengyu, a spokesman for the Chinese embassy in Washington, in turn, said that the United States should abandon "megaphone diplomacy." He also called on countries with large nuclear arsenals to significantly reduce them for further negotiations on nuclear arms control.
