The past several years have witnessed a major revival of interest in nuclear disarmament in the United States. However, Chinese and Russian policy makers have been circumspect in their public commentary on the subject. Moreover, Beijing and Moscow are both currently reassessing their nuclear policies and postures. The decisions they make will affect their negotiating positions for years to come; therefore, now is the time to engage both countries in discussions about deep nuclear reductions that could ultimately lead to the elimination of their arsenals. Such actions will contribute to reaching "nuclear zero." With an eye to engaging Beijing and Moscow in a serious dialogue about practical steps along "the road to zero," this paper analyzes the prevailing perspectives, bureaucratic players, and politics related to nuclear disarmament in China and Russia.
