Chinese American Forum;Jan2009, Vol. 24 Issue 3, p38
The author reflects on the issue concerning the speculation that China was spying with the nuclear capability of the U.S. when it disclosed information on its development of nuclear weapons. He contends that China's move aims to provide information to the U.S. and help the country manufacture effective nuclear weapon technology. The author also argues on the allegation of the U.S. concerning China's lack of military transparency when it disregards its nuclear disclosure made since 1964-2008.
