China actively pushes forward the conclusion of a multilateral treaty
on mutual no-first use of nuclear weapons. In January 1994, China
formally submitted a draft treaty on the No-First Use of Nuclear
Weapons to US, Russia, France and Britain and suggested a consultation
between the five nuclear-weapon states at an early date.
China has been actively seeking support of the other nuclear-weapon
states to undertake the no-first use commitment on bilateral basis.
On September 4, 1994, in their declaration, Presidents of China
and Russia undertook not to be the first to use nuclear weapons
against each other or target their nuclear weapons at each other.
China agrees that, as an integral part of the nuclear disarmament
process, some confidence-building measures are necessary before
comprehensive ban and thorough elimination of nuclear weapons. These
measures can be taken into consideration under the framework of
a complete prohibition of nuclear weapons convention.
