Nor groundbreaking, but I think it’s worth highlighting this Chinese statement to the CD:

However, the disarmament process must be gradual and enjoy consensus among all stakeholders, he stressed…. China supports the drafting of a fissile material cut‑off treaty in the Conference on Disarmament, he said.
