The fourth episode of the Riga Security Forum is a comprehensive discussion on nuclear arsenal and China. The discussion delves into the multifaceted issues surrounding China's nuclear weapons program and its implications on global security and diplomacy. 

The discussion between distinguished experts Lynn Rusten, Vice president for NTI's Global Nuclear Policy Program and Dr. Sandis Šrāders, Researcher and Lecturer at the Baltic Defence College, explore China’s strategic intentions, regional and international implications. 

The Riga Security Forum brings together international experts in security, politics, technology, education, and defense. In a series of freely available webcasts, the Forum's interlocutors explore issues of global significance through political self-reflection and, by answering uncomfortable questions, strengthen mutual understanding in building a safer future. This year's theme is "How European is European Security?".

A new audio and video episode will be released weekly in both English and Latvian from October 31 to the end of December, covering topics across both the "traditional" or conventional dimensions of security and the "unconventional" or non-conventional security challenges.

The discussions are freely available on the website:, on the LIIA social media accounts, and on Apple and Spotify platforms. 

The project is the result of a successful collaboration between the Latvian Institute of International Affairs, NATO Public Diplomacy Department, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Baltic States, Embassies of the United States, Poland, Canada, Spain in Latvia, as well as international defense, security and aviation lifecycle support services, pilot training and technology solutions provider “Patria”, Riga Graduate School of Law Riga and 5G Techritory platform.
