There is no formal bilateral working group between the UK and China on arms control and disarmament. However, we maintain a high level dialogue between senior officials to discuss counter-proliferation issues. The most recent of these exchanges took place in September 2008 between the FCO Director-General for Defence and Intelligence and her Chinese counterpart. I recently raised matters of counter-proliferation with my Chinese counterpart during my visit to Beijing last month. In addition, embassy officials in Beijing regularly meet officials from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss these issues.
