Policy Workshop - US/China Nuclear Weapons Relationship

Frank N. von Hippel


US and Chinese nuclear-weapon policy communities find it difficult to understand each other. In the US, some see China as content with the current situation in which China's small non-alert strategic nuclear force is seen as sufficient to prevent nuclear threats by the US nuclear superpower. Others fear that China could decide to "race to nuclear parity." The purpose of this workshop is to better understand the influences of the US and Chinese strategic offensive and defensive programs on each other. The final report will make recommendations to both sides to prevent the US fears of a Chinese nuclear buildup from becoming self-fulfilling.
