The fifth Sino-US conference on arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation will be held in Beijing from July 20 to 21, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue in Beijing Thursday at a regular press conference.

Over 50 scholars, experts and government officials from China and the United States will attend the conference, she said. Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui also will be present at the opening ceremony.

The representative for the US side is Susan Burk, acting Assistant Secretary of the State, and the representative for the Chinese side is Liu Jieyi, director of the Department of Disarmament and Arms Control with the Foreign Ministry, she said.

Major topics of the conference include the construction of Sino-US strategic security framework, challenges facing the international nonproliferation system and strategies to deal with them, Sino-US cooperation on nonproliferation and the development of international nonproliferation, Zhang said.

China holds that its government and the United States share common interests in arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation. The two sides have undertaken frequent consultations in these fields in recent years, including the Sino-US conferences in both countries and three rounds of consultations at vice ministerial level.
