President Trump has warned China that Washington is taking measures to curb the exporting of nuclear technology to China, adding that Americans were not “stupid”, AFP reports as the Department of Energy released yesterday a set of measures “to prevent China’s illegal diversion of U.S. civil nuclear technology for military or other unauthorized purposes.”
"For decades China has maintained a concerted, central government-run strategy to acquire nuclear technology to gain economic advantage," a source from Washington told AFP.
In the Department of Energy release, Secretary Rick Perry said, “The United States cannot ignore the national security implications of China’s efforts to obtain nuclear technology outside of established processes of U.S.-China civil nuclear cooperation.”
As part of these measures, the United States will stop approving new license applications or extend existing authorizations previously granted to the China General Nuclear Power Group—a Chinese state business entity that is under indictment in the United States on charges of conspiring to steal nuclear technology.
