China Calls for Cooperation in Arms Sales Control

BEIJING – China called on countries to refrain from selling weapons to non-state actors and stop interfering in the internal affairs of sovereign states through the sale of arms, at the sixth Conference of States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which was summoned in written procedure on Monday due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
China attended the meeting as a state party for the first time and submitted a written statement, in which China made proposals on strengthening the ATT, which included the remarks as mentioned earlier, according to a message from the Permanent Mission of China to the UN Office at Geneva’s WeChat public account.
China’s ATT statement came after tensions in the Taiwan Strait were fueled by frequent arms deals between the United States and the island of Taiwan. An agreement with the US arms company Lockheed Martin to purchase 66 F-16V fighter jets signed by Taiwan was announced in mid-August, a move that China strongly opposes.
As a countermeasure, China decided to impose sanctions on Lockheed Martin, the main contractor involved in the latest plan to sell arms to Taiwan, as a measure necessary to safeguard national interests.
In the conference statement, China called for strengthening the interaction and coordination of conventional arms control mechanisms within the framework of the United Nations and actively supported the UN by playing a central role in the control of conventional arms.
China also stressed the importance of enhancing the universality and effectiveness of the Treaty and actively conducting international cooperation and assistance.
In phone calls with conference chair Federico Villegas and TCA Secretariat chief Dumisani Dladla, Li Song, Chinese Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary for Disarmament Affairs, said China attaches great importance to humanitarian issues caused by conventional weapons and takes a careful and responsible attitude to military exports and implements strict management.
China is actively supporting the international community in taking the necessary steps to regulate the international arms trade and crack down on illicit arms transfers, Li said, noting that ATT membership shows China’s determination and sincerity to support multilateralism and to build a community with a common future for humanity.
Villegas and Dladla praised China’s participation as a State Party for the first time. They stressed that China’s accession is an important step in the development of the ATT, which is of great importance to strengthen the confidence of the international community in the ATT and further promote the multilateral arms control process.
As an active contributor to world peace and a staunch defender of international order, China said it would work with all parties to further contribute to building a normalized and reasonable order on the arms trade, according to the Chinese statement on Monday.
China joined the ATT after its envoy to the UN deposited the instrument of accession with the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in July.
The conference is being held from Monday to Friday.
