BEIJING: China on Friday countered US President-elect Donald Trump's remarks about expanding the country's nuclear capabilities by suggesting that Washington should be doing the opposite. It should take the lead in reducing nuclear weapons for a safer world.
"The world's largest nuclear stockpile country should take the lead in making substantial cuts to its nuclear arsenal so as to create conditions for total elimination of nuclear weapons," Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Friday in response to Trump's comment over Twitter.
On Thursday, Trump tweeted that the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capabilities until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.
if china really stands for destruction of nuclear arsenal...why is it making underground bunker for pak nuclears...double standard talks.
Chinese politiciansis purely a ridiculous personalities. double game player all the time
Chinese cowards are using proxies even for nuclear weapons. How in the world is it possible for Pakistan to amass 130 nuclear warheads and also start producing deadly tactical highly mobile nuclear weapons.
You are becoming a threat to all peace loving nations of the region. Pakistan and North Korea are your pets who are senceless armory to threaten the world. You dot have any position to preach others
The Chinese have a nerve advising the USA to cut its nuclear arsenal. What about starting the process themselves?

China is right. Only China has the divine right todo any thing they want, none other.
China's arrogance makes me cringe
It is trying to be the Dada of the world and especially the FM of China seems like an arrogant nationalist
trying to give everyone orders.
China must beware even though it has 1.4 bn population
It is weak due to many factors
Days of China is becoming over. Infact China is digging it's own grave
China should Voluntarily Eliminate its Nuclear Arsenal.
