On the day before Boris Yeltsin’s arrival in Beijing, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman yesterday rejected a call, made during the recent nuclear security summit in Moscow, for a global ban on nuclear tests. Russia had agreed to the ban during the summit, and Boris Yeltsin said that he would lobby for Beijing’s approval during his trip to China. Beijing has insisted on its right to continue conducting "peaceful" nuclear explosions. (Reuter, April 23)
