ABSTRACT
The article suggests the need for U.S. President Barack Obama to encourage China to participate in the global nuclear arms control negotiations. The government of China reportedly resisted participating in the negotiation, urging Russia and the U.S. to first reduce their own arsenals to levels approximating that of China. China's fixation with developing a large fleet of intermediate-range missiles also contributed to problems with extending the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty to other countries.
