China Deeply Regrets U.S. Withdrawal from Open Skies Treaty

BEIJING – China deeply regrets the United States’ insistence on withdrawing from the Open Skies Treaty regardless of opposition from the international community, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Zhao Lijian, said on Monday.
Zhao Lijian made the remarks when asked to comment on the US announcement that it would withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty, a major international arms control agreement.
Zhao said the US decision would damage mutual military trust and transparency among countries in the region and would not be conducive to regional security and stability.
The decision will negatively affect the international arms control and disarmament process, Zhao added.
He called on the United States to carefully take into account the concerns of the parties concerned, including Russia, as well as the international community, and to resolve differences through dialogue.
Deliberately withdrawing from international treaties is not an appropriate practice for a country like US, Zhao said.
