The talks on China’s accession to the strategic arms limitation negotiations have been going on for a long time. Beijing has always adhered to the general policy that it would not join anything, but with a reservation. Sergey Lukonin thinks that Beijing is ready to consider this option if China’s nuclear arsenal reaches the level of the United States and Russia. Therefore, as the expert notes, we are facing a cosmetic update of the Chinese rhetoric, but its essence does not change. Until there is real nuclear parity with Russia and the United States, Beijing will not meet such restrictions, summarizes Lukonin.
