China has dismissed the possibility of entering into negotiations for a trilateral arms control deal alongside the United States and Russia, highlighting that the former has failed to uphold its international commitments anyway.
At a press briefing Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang warned of “growing instabilities and uncertainties in the field of international strategic security,” specifically pointing out how a “certain major country has withdrawn from one international treaty and mechanism while building up its own nuclear and missile power.” The remarks came as President Donald Trump attempted to get Beijing to join new non-proliferation agreements as Washington abandoned previous ones with Moscow.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
