China flag row mars US-Russia nuclear arms talks in Vienna | South China Morning Post

In a Tweet by Ambassador Marshall S. Billingslea, the Chinese flag is shown at a negotiating table where Russia and the U.S are discussing disarmament. This photo has sparked a lot of Chinese criticism after China has not taken apart in the discussion or showed up to talk about it after U.S pressure. Some have accused the act of placing the flag as performance art. According to South China Evening Post, “The US and Russia possess more than 90 per cent of the world’s nuclear arsenal between them and experts say the US insistence on involving China in the talks is an attempt to justify the possible abandoning of the treaty.”
