Youth Fusion member Accardo Hu interviews Dr Zhao about his personal experience, Chinese No First Use policy and encouragement of youth.
In the interview, Dr Zhao starts off by talking about his personal experiences.
As for China’s NFU policy, he mentions that China has developed nuclear weapons and adopted NFU policy for the purpose of self-defense and creating an image as responsible nuclear power, which would also set up a positive example of not depending too much on nuclear weapons for other nuclear arms states. Rather than in a position to evaluate the credibility of China’s NFU, Dr Zhao elaborates what causes concerns about Chinese NFU policy.
Finally, Dr Zhao gives very inspiring words on the engagement of the younger generation and intergenerational dialogue.
