As Chinese sources reported, Colin Powell informed Tang Jiaxuan of the accord between the USA and Russia on strategic offensive arms. The Chinese Minister expressed hope that Washington and Moscow would go on making efforts to cut their nuclear arsenals and would thereby ensure progress in nuclear disarmament throughout the world.
