The "Chinese factor" is playing an increasingly important role in ensuring regional and international security. At the moment, there are no reasonable arguments in favor of China's participation in arms control on an equal footing with Russia and the United States, but there is a tendency to correct this bias on the part of China. In terms of its influence on strategic stability, China can no longer be put on the same level as France or the UK. By modernizing and increasing the military budget, the PRC demonstrates its readiness to become a full-fledged "military superpower", including in the field of rocket science and advanced technologies. This paper analyzes the Chinese arsenal of strategic non-nuclear weapons (SNNW) in the Asia-Pacific region (APR).
