U.S.-China Missile Agreement Implementation

U.S.-China Missile Agreement Implementation

March 20 State Department statement

Following is the text of a question taken at the March 20 regular State Department briefing; an answer was posted later in the day:

US DEPARTMENT OF STATE Office of the Spokesman For Immediate Release March 20, 2001 Taken Question (3/20/01)

CHINA MISSILE AGREEMENT

Q: Have there been any problems with the November 2000 agreement with the PRC on missile nonproliferation? Have they submitted any lists? Is there anything you can tell us about implementation of the agreement?

A:

-- Our November 21, 2000, missile nonproliferation arrangement commits China not to assist other countries in developing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles in any way, and to put in place comprehensive missile-related export controls.

-- The key will be whether China implements fully these commitments. We will monitor this situation closely and will continue to press for full implementation.

-- As Secretary Powell has said, the administration will take a firm stand opposing Chinese transfers of missile- or weapons of mass destruction (WMD)-related technology to other countries.
