China adding to weapon proliferation: US report

PTI

By providing nuclear and missile technology to countries like Iran and Pakistan, China is adding to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, a Congressional report has stated.

The report further said that such activities have continued to raise questions about China’s commitment to non-proliferation and the need for US sanctions.

“China has taken some steps to mollify US and other foreign concerns about its role in weapons proliferation.”

Nonetheless, supplies from China have aggravated trends that result in ambiguous technical aid, more indigenous capabilities, longer-range missiles, and secondary (re-transferred) proliferation,” the Congressional Research Service (CRS), said in a report to the lawmakers.

According to unclassified intelligence reports submitted to Congress, China has been a “key supplier of technology, particularly PRC (People’s Republic of China) entities providing nuclear and missile-related technology to Pakistan and missile-related technology to Iran,” the CRS report said.
