US wants to invite China to arms control talks
WASHINGTON, (BM) – China should be part of the new arms control agreements, said Kay Bailey Hutchinson, US Permanent Representative to the North Atlantic Alliance, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the speech of the Permanent Representative to the Heritage Foundation in Washington.
China may have more missiles than Russia, so it should be part of the agreements, Hutchinson explained. She noted that China has opportunities that put it at a higher level in matters of weapons of mass destruction.
Hutchinson also noted that Russia supported the American initiative to invite China to participate in the agreements.
At the same time, Russia and China are keen to “rewrite the international order,” said US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. This was reported by TASS with reference to a statement by the Minister at Johns Hopkins University.
According to Esper, Russia and China are “revisionist powers” and seek to rewrite the international order and norms. In addition, both states “violated the sovereignty of their neighbors” in order to gain strategic advantages, the minister said.
Esper also accused Russia of conducting a “hybrid war” with the goal of expanding its regional influence and of conducting “malicious cyber operations.”
