BEIJING, March 31 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government takes a prudent attitude towards the export of military products and related technologies, and has established a non-proliferation mechanism at the three levels of government, producers, and export companies, said a white paper on China's national defense issued on Thursday.

The Chinese government strictly fulfills its international obligations, commitments and relevant resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations on sanctions, says the report issued by the Information Office of the State Council.

In exporting military products, China follows the principle of helping the recipient state enhance its capability for legitimate self-defense, not impairing peace, security and stability of the relevant region or the world as a whole, and not interfering in the recipient state's internal affairs, the report says.

China has set up a franchising system for the enterprises permitted to export military products, practices a licensing system for military product export, and strictly abides by its policies and laws on non-proliferation, the report says.

The report says the Chinese government attaches great importance to international cooperation in the field of nuclear energy.

It has reached inter-governmental agreements with 23 countries on peaceful use of nuclear energy, introduced advanced nuclear energy technologies into China, and provided every possible assistance to developing countries, the report says.

In accordance with the principle of peaceful use of outer space, China has conducted bilateral cooperation and exchanges with Russia, France, Brazil, Ukraine, the United States, and the European Space Agency in the fields of space technology, space exploration, and space science, the report says.

China supports the work of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organization, it says.
