China ‘likely training for strikes’ on US targets

There will be consequences for Chinese militarisation in South China Sea United States

The Chinese military has "rapidly expanded its overwater bomber operating" in the Pacific region and "developing strike capabilities to engage targets as far away from China as possible", the report says.

The Pentagon report said that while the People's Liberation Army had continued to extend operations, it was not clear what message Beijing was looking to send by carrying out bomber flights "beyond a demonstration of improved capabilities". It was released late Thursday.

China is actively developing its fleet of long-range bombers and "likely" training its pilots for missions targeting the USA, according to a new Pentagon report.

Wu urged the U.S. to adhere to the one-China policy and the principles of the three joint communiques, and to discreetly deal with Taiwan-related issues.

According to the spokesman, Beijing is a facilitator of world peace, a contributor to global development and the worldwide order that always adheres to a path of peaceful development and a defensive military strategy.

China's Global Times newspaper on Sunday quoted a Chinese military official who said the Pentagon report misinterpreted China's strategic intention and hyped up the "China military threat".

The document also shines a light on China's ongoing military preparations for a "contingency" in the Taiwan Strait.

The U.S. Department of Defense's 2018 report to Congress also distorted relations and situation across the Taiwan Strait, said Wu Qian, the spokesperson for China's Ministry of National Defense, Friday.

Brad Glosserman, a visiting professor at Tokyo's Tama University, said Monday that it's clear that the Chinese military is planning for contingencies that assume the USA would be an adversary.

It said the report by the United States harms mutual trust between the two countries, the ministry said.

"To operationalize that strategy means they should be doing exactly what they are doing", he said.

When the Pentagon released its annual report previous year, Beijing dismissed it as "irresponsible" in predicting that China would expand its global military presence by building overseas bases in countries like Pakistan. "And the main reason is that US China policy has undergone some major changes and adjustments", he said.

China, as a facilitator of world peace, a contributor to global development and a maintainer of worldwide order, has firmly taken the path of peaceful development and steadfastly pursued a national defense policy that is defensive in nature, he said.
