The Chinese government does not plan to participate in any trilateral disarmament talks with Russia and the United States, TASS reported referring to FM's spokesperson Hua Chunying.

According to her, in recent years, the US has withdrawn from a number of international deals, including the Iranian nuclear deal, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the Arms Trade Treaty, the treaty Open Skies, and now they are discussing the possibility of resuming nuclear tests.

When an official of such a country talks about goodwill talks, this is absurd, she added.

Special Presidential Envoy for Arms Control Marshall Billingslea said Monday that he had agreed with Russian Deputy DM Sergei Ryabkov about nuclear arms talks this month.

"Today agreed with the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov on time and place for nuclear arms negotiations in June. China also invited. Will China show and negotiate in good faith?" Billingslea tweeted.

As Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing an unnamed representative of the US State Department, Ryabkov and Billingslea will hold talks on June 22 in Vienna. According to the agency, Washington does not exclude that the talks will discuss the possibility of extending the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
