China: US should refrain from deploying nuclear weapons

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian said on Friday that the United States "should refrain from deploying nuclear weapons in the region or spreading nuclear weapons to regional countries" following Washington's AUKUS agreement with Australia and the United Kingdom on building nuclear submarines.

"The practices of the three countries prove again that for geopolitical and military confrontation purposes, they will go as far as to discard the basic norms of international relations that countries, big and small, are all equals, and wantonly run against the will of regional countries and trample upon their rights and interests," Zhao said. "China again urges the three countries to heed the call from the international community, abandon outdated zero-sum mentality and narrow-minded geopolitical concepts, revoke the wrong decision, faithfully fulfill international non-proliferation obligations and do more that benefits regional peace and stability."
