The Chinese side strongly protests the publication by the US Department of Defense of a report on the development of the PRC-2010 armed forces, which "ignores objective reality, condemns China's normal defense and army construction, inflates the so-called" military threat "of mainland China against Taiwan and accuses the Chinese side that it suspended the exchanges of military delegations and thus created an obstacle to the development of cooperation between the armies of the two countries. " This statement was made by 18 August, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of China, Gen Yansheng.
China, he stressed, has consistently taken the path of peaceful development, firmly adhering to the defensive nature of the policy in the sphere of national defense, does not provoke an arms race and does not pose a military threat to any states. The rates of development of the Chinese armed forces, he noted, prove to be quite rational and relevant the goals of protecting the sovereignty, security and territorial integrity of the state, and are also necessary so that the army can keep up with the new world process of military transformations and rapid development. Geng Yansheng stressed that the Chinese army carries out active exchanges and cooperation with foreign colleagues, is committed to protecting world peace and regional stability.
