BEIJING, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - China believes that Russia and the United States should create favourable conditions for common nuclear disarmament, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
Speaking at a press briefing on Thursday, she said, “China believes that Russia and the United States, which possess of the biggest arsenals of nuclear weapons, bear special and priority responsibility for nuclear disarmament.”

On Wednesday, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said Barack Obama informed President Vladimir Putin about the U.S. intention to return to this issue.
At the same time, Ushakov stressed that Moscow believed it necessary to involve other countries, possessing of nuclear weapons, in the process.
“They [Russia and the U.S.] should continue reduce nuclear arsenals. Thus, one can create necessary conditions for full nuclear disarmament,” the Chinese spokesperson said.
