China's stance on "no first use" of nuclear weapons remains unchanged, FM
font size    

China will not first use nuclear weapons at any time and under any condition, Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing said in Beijing on July 21.

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 told scholars from China, the United States and Japan.

On the recent remarks by a researcher from the Chinese military on China's nuclear weapon policy, Li said what the researcher said was only his personal view and not represented the stance of the Chinese government.

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.

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

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