The vicissitudes of bilateral and multilateral arms control and disarmament agreements and negotiations reflect a tense and uncertain international political environment. It is an oddity of the contemporary international constellation that there is no strongly status quo power. China, Russia and the USA all challenge and seek to modify aspects of the world political order. For China as a rising power and Russia, given its perception that it lost out badly in the decade after the end of the cold war, this challenge is easily understandable. Both are actively challenging components of the global order, from the political geography of key regions to the balance of power in international finance.
