ABSTRACT

Countering Chinese Proliferation Activity   [open pdf - 791KB]

"Control of the proliferation of nuclear technology (including fissile material), chemical and biological weapons and their precursors, and ballistic missile delivery systems continues to be a priority for the Administration. While progress has been made with a number of key countries (e.g. Russia, Israel, South Africa, Argentina) to control the flow of technologies applicable to weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), concrete progress with China remains elusive. China continues to serve as the major source of proliferation concern for the United States. It is imperative that steps be taken to alter Chinese behavior since a failure to do so places in danger the whole of the Administration's nonproliferation policy. This paper analyzes Chinese behavior, the threat posed to U.S. interests, and proposes a series of short-term steps to move the situation beyond its current impasse and to bring Chinese comportment into line with prevailing world standards."
