China asks U.S to ‘think twice’ before pulling out

China on Monday called on the U.S. to “think twice” about its decision to ditch the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia. Two top Republican lawmakers backed President Donald Trump’s worries about China on Sunday, saying there are concerns that the treaty is holding the U.S. back while allowing China to move forward with its own developments. “It needs to be emphasised that it is completely wrong to bring up China when talking about withdrawal from the treaty,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying on Monday. “Unilateral withdrawal will have a multitude of negative effects,” said Ms. Hua. She said that China hoped the relevant parties can “think twice about the issue of withdrawing”, in a reference to the U.S.
