U.S. and Russian officials will meet later this month for nuclear arms control negotiations, a top Trump administration arms control official said Monday. 

Special Presidential Envoy for Arms Control Marshall Billingslea tweeted that he and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov have agreed "on time and place for nuclear arms negotiations in June," referring to the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), which places limits on deployed nuclear warheads.

Billingslea added that China was also invited to the talks but said it's unknown if the country will participate.

"Will China show and negotiate in good faith?" Billingslea asked.
