According to Sir Stephen Lovegrove, the senior national security adviser for Britain, the risk of nuclear proliferation is higher now than during the Cold War, especially with regard to China.
Talking to the Center for International Research (CSIS) in Washington, D.C., a former top official at the Ministry of Defense tried to argue the West “faces a much broader range of strategic issues and paths to escalating violence” than in the Cold War.
This is partly because, during that protracted conflict, the Soviet Union and its satellites managed to reach somewhat of a “common understanding of ideology” that made the threat of nuclear battle more workable.
He called attention to “Russia’s multiple violations of its agreement responsibilities,” as well as “the tempo and magnitude with which China is trying to expand its nuclear and conventional armaments.”
He then slammed “the utter contempt it has shown for interacting with any treaty provisions,” saying that nuclear ideology today “is ambiguous in Moscow and Beijing, let alone Pyongyang or Tehran.”
PM Aspirant Warms Up to China
Rishi Sunak, a former chancellor and potential prime minister, was the main force behind efforts to establish “deeper commercial connections” with the Communist Party of China, according to leaked records from the Treasury.
Despite recent statements by Rishi Sunak that he’d be the one to “get hard on China,” a Treasury memorandum titled “Policy Results of the 11th UK-China Economic and Financial Conversation” was leaked to The Times of London.
This memorandum outlined how the Sunak-led department would bring the British and Chinese economic systems into perfect correlation.

The following section of the letter outlines a number of particular economic sectors for future collaboration.
This is including an invitation to the £1 trillion China Investment Corp wealth fund to establish a “diplomatic mission” in the UK to signify its status as a “significant investor.”
The strategy paper also recommended that in order to admit Chinese companies to the London Stock Exchange, British government restrictions might be relaxed.
In order to establish London as a “leading offshore center” for Chinese money and debt, the authorities would also seek to let the CCP make loans to the renminbi in the United Kingdom.
China recognizes the unmatched depth and liquidity of London’s financial markets, as well as the possibilities this affords, according to the statement the UK is the “market of choice” for China in terms of global banking.

Undoubtedly, the 47-page memorandum made no reference to Beijing’s flagrant and ongoing infractions of the liberties promises made to the people of Hong Kong under the Sino-British Cooperation Agreement.
It didn’t mention the UK Parliament’s proclamation of mass slaughter against the Uyghur Muslim population and other minority groups in the western region of Xinjiang or the centuries of repression in Tibet.
