A group of members of Congress supported bringing China into negotiations on start-3

A group of about 40 members of Congress published on Tuesday a letter to the President of the United States Donald Trump, which supports the initiative of the us administration to engage China in bilateral negotiations with Russia on strategic stability.

Despite the support of the negotiations, the congressmen have attacked China, saying it "malign nuclear ambitions", which, according to them, should be contained.

The congressmen cite the publication in the Chinese press that China could increase its nuclear Arsenal to 1 thousands of warheads, that is, about three times.

"Such rhetoric emphasizes the need to limit the Arsenal of China is the largest at the current level through effective arms control," write the MPs.

Trump's special envoy on arms control Marshall Billingsley in his Twitter called the letter a "powerful" and said that the administration is an important support in Congress.
