If the treaty is abolished, security risks will be reassessed and major powers will redefin

As far as China is concerned, the US intends to make the INF treaty a multilateral agreement, which may become an
excuse for Washington to exert pressure on Beijing. Without the restraints of the treaty,
the US may intensify its deployment of offensive miss
iles and anti-missile systems around China, further increasing China’s strategic security challenges.

st reject any request from the US on the issue. Instead of relying too much on land-bas
ed missiles for national security, China must diversify its strategic nuclear deterrence. It’s an urgent task.
