China’s government has appealed to Washington and Moscow to preserve the nuclear arms treaty following a US decision to withdraw.
The foreign ministry warned on Saturday the Trump administration's withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty might trigger “adverse consequences.”
A ministry statement said: “China is opposed to the US withdrawal and urges the US and Russia to properly resolve differences through constructive dialogue.”
The Trump administration announced the decision on Friday to shed what it sees as unreasonable constraints on competing with Russia and a more assertive China.
Other governments and arms-control advocates have warned the US move might open the door to a new nuclear arms race.
