China on Pentagon’s report: stop groundless accusation of China’s military strategies

China reacted to Pentagon’s release of ‘Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China 2014’. In a press briefing China said, “The US side publishes the so-called report on China’s military strength year after year and makes carping comments on China’s normal national defense building. China is always opposed to this. The report questions China’s regular national defense building, strategic intentions and its legitimate behaviors of safeguarding territorial sovereignty and security interests, and makes wild speculations of and improper comments on China’s military development. Behind this report are the ulterior motives of the US.”

“China unswervingly follows the path of peaceful development, adopts a national defense policy that is defensive in nature and remains a staunch force in safeguarding peace and stability of the Asia-Pacific and the world as a whole. China’s national defense building is solely for the purpose of maintaining national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, and this is the normal right of a sovereign state.”

“China takes notes that the report recognizes the importance of military to military exchanges between China and the US. China is committed to enhancing military exchanges between the two countries.”

“We hope that the American side can discard the cold-war mentality, hold an objective and reasonable view on China’s national defense building, stop groundless distortion and accusation of China’s military strategies, stop issuing such report and take tangible steps to push for the sound development of military relations between China and the US.”

According to the said Pentagon’s 2014 report to US Congress, “China will likely continue to invest considerable resources to maintain a limited, survivable, nuclear force to ensure the PLA can deliver a damaging retaliatory nuclear strike.”

“The majority of China’s missile programs, including its ballistic and cruise missile systems, is comparable to other international top-tier producers… China is among the top ship-producing nations in the world….”

“Preparation for a Taiwan conflict with the possibility of U.S. involvement continues to dominate China’s military modernization program.”
