China CRIENGLISH China Says Will Not Change Nuclear Stance
2005-7-22 2:51:25
China has reiterated that it will not first use nuclear weapons at any time and under any condition.
Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing made the remarks on Thursday when speaking to scholars from China, the United States and Japan.

Li said China has consistently observed the commitment since its first nuclear test in 1964 and such a stance "will not be changed in the future."

Li also reaffirmed the Chinese government's stance on the Taiwan issue, stressing China adheres to the principle of "peaceful reunification, and one country, two systems" to resolve the Taiwan problem.

He said, however, China will never allow anyone or any force to separate Taiwan from China by any means.

The Chinese, US and Japanese scholars are in Beijing to participate in an informal symposium on China-US-Japan relations sponsored by Beijing University and US-based Brookings Institution.
