China Conducted Nuclear test, Report

In WSJ report it is reported that 'China might be secretly conducting nuclear tests with very low explosive power’. However the coming report doesn’t present proof that China is violating its promise to uphold the agreement, but it cites an array of activities including  high tempo of activity at China’s Lop Nur test site, extensive excavations at the site and Beijing’s purported use of special chambers to contain explosions.

In State Department report it is highlighted that by doing Nuclear test Beijing would break it’s assertions of strictly adhering to an international accord banning all nuclear tests, as per a new arms-control report to be made public by the State Department.

Earlier US has been interrupted of data transmissions by China from monitoring stations on Chinese territory that are designed to detect radioactive emissions and seismic tremors, this increased the US State Department's suspicion over China, reported Wall Street Journal.
