A story from From Hu Side:

Since the late 1980's, Chinese nuclear scientists have begun to communicate with their American counterparts in the field of nuclear arms control. As the chairman and member of the Chinese Scientists Group on Arms Control (CSGAC), I learned from the exchanges with the National Academies CISAC and Stanford CISAC over the past three decades that there were many well-known physicists in the arms control field in the United States, among which Dr. Drell was an outstanding representative. As a top advisor to the US government on military technology and arms control, he expressed independent and insightful opinions on many important issues. In particular, his views on the issue of ballistic missile defense and his proposals for consultation with China on strategic security were both far-sighted and impressive.

I met Dr. Drell twice during our team's visit to CISAC at Stanford University in 2009 and 2013. In my conversations with him on the "nuclear-weapons-free world" initiative, I felt his concern about the various nuclear risks posed by nuclear weapons and his courage and wisdom in promoting a deep and stable process of nuclear disarmament. I found that I shared a lot of common views with him in using scientific and technological knowledge to serve national security, world peace and stability.

Today, at a time when the international nuclear arms control is facing difficulties, I miss Dr. Drell even more. His insights and courage in advancing nuclear arms control inspire us to continue our efforts. I sincerely hope that the cooperation between Chinese and American scientists and arms control experts will be strengthened to inject new vitality into China-US relations and arms control process.
