China will continue to carry forward the implementation of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1540 that prevents the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning on Tuesday.

Mao made the remarks at a press conference in Beijing when asked about the 4th Training Course of the 1540 Points of Contact in the Asia and Pacific Region which commenced in Beijing on Tuesday.

"This training course was jointly held by Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, United Nations Security Council 1540 Committee and United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs. Representatives from 27 Asia-Pacific countries and 14 international organizations and institutions participated in the course. Resolution 1540 requires Member States to enhance export controls and other measures, fulfill the international obligations of non-proliferation and prevent non-state actors from acquiring weapons of mass destruction; meanwhile it regulates that non-proliferation actions shall not damage Member States' legitimate right of peaceful use of science and technology," said Mao.

"This year marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of Resolution 1540. The training course takes stock of the past and envisions the future. China will continue to advance the Global Security Initiative, enhance cooperation with United Nations and other parties to carry forward the implementation of Resolution 1540 and support Asia-Pacific countries in capacity building to establish a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory international order of non-proliferation export control," she said.
