China, US to Continue Non-Proliferation Cooperation

The United States expects to maintain consultations and cooperation with China in the field of non-proliferation, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Kong Quan said Friday.

He said that the issue of non-proliferation is being discussed during the meeting between the Chinese and the US heads of states.

The Chinese have always been opposed to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and China and the United States have common objectives in this area, Kong said.

He noted that China has earnestly adhered to the agreement reached by the two countries in November of 2000, and that China is working on an export control list for missile-related items and relevant regulations.

He added that anyone in China violating the non-proliferation laws and regulations would be punished accordingly.

Kong said that the United States has expressed appreciation for China's stance on the issue.
