7 11 morning, the PLA Chief of General Staff Chen Bingde building in front of the Central Military Commission held a welcoming parade, welcome to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael – Mullen’s visit to China. At the same time, the international media paid great attention to the Mullen visit.
this, CCTV commentator, Ma Xiaolin in four international experts, “China News” in the comments that Mullen’s visit includes many highlights Sino-US military ties and a breakthrough, showing the pros and cons to push Sino-US military exchanges to defend the strategic mutual trust, or say, but in its overall China-US relations and global significance of architecture, there is the process of building long-term and complex nature, the situation only from the South China Sea shows that the Taiwan issue and Sino-US this “military honeymoon “difficult to cover the United States continue to make strategic prevention and containment of China’s reality.
Ma Xiaolin, said Mullen’s visit came after U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates in January this year, China in May this year, Chief of Staff Chen Bingde against the United States after the third high-level military exchanges, this high-density, high- military exchanges, unprecedented in the history of Sino-US relations in recent years, indicating that the two sides of the great value and significance of military exchanges full attention.
Secondly, Mullen’s visit during the visit when it was not like Bill Gates to visit China Second Artillery headquarters, but also to Shandong, Zhejiang, visited a number of sea and air military bases, and even media reports, Mullen also likely to visit China latest weapons and equipment, including strategic weapons, such as carrying a nuclear warhead strategic nuclear weapons, which show that China and the U.S. military’s frank and transparent strategic posture, indicating that China has no intention to challenge the U.S. pursuit of global hegemony.
third, Mullen deliberately chose the Renmin University of China arranged a public speech, and answered questions of students and teachers, but also unconventional, because the visiting former U.S. military personnel are generally confined to China military exchanges, the expansion to the private sector, indicating the U.S. would like more contact with Chinese people and all sectors, in order to widely promote the concept of the United States, in turn, listen to the parties to the US-China relations China’s views and thoughts.
Ma Xiaolin concluded that the breakthroughs and highlights that China-US military relations, this “short version” that easily could bid farewell to the past, suffered due to political tensions twists and turns of history, in turn, facilitate and promote Sino-US strategic mutual trust, China-US political relations for the escort.
In response to continued tension in the face of the South China Sea, the extent to which Mullen’s visit to promote China-US mutual trust and how it affects the future of Sino-US relations, Ma Xiaolin said, just look at Mullen’s visit and three times in the past six months U.S. high-level military visits the scene, this year’s Sino-US relations can be marked “in Sino-US military exchanges,” the mark, it seems really into the Sino-US relations, “the military honeymoon period.” However, we must recognize that China-US relations on the one hand with the global and strategic significance, on the other hand, there are also the normal process of relationship building long-term, severe and complex.
Ma Xiaolin Mullen said of his site to listen to a speech at Renmin University, said the feeling is, Mullen expressed in the People’s University three meanings: First, China and U.S. should respect each other; Secondly, not only focus on in the region, but also focus on the world; Third, not only to focus on now, but also focus on the future. Mullen said this way of expression or discourse, so that sounds very familiar to Chinese people, and even feel very comfortable, very friendly, with a description of the United States in trying to express Chinese people’s thinking and to explain to the Chinese people their core ideas.
Ma Xiaolin that the United States by Mullen, “the words were nice, it is better to do things pretty.” Out of Beijing’s high-level meetings and comfortable campus speech, when people are overlooking the east of Taiwan, or south, overlooking the South China Sea, will find that, so far, the United States does not intend to stop selling weapons to Taiwan, or even to raise the level of sales of advanced weapons; in South China Sea, the United States assumed a hostile posture against China, including issues related to the South China Sea countries are trying to coordinate this issue international, the Chinese manufacturing problems, including United Japan, Australia to conduct military exercises. These are to contain, blockade of China’s strategic posture, these realities clear that high-level friendly exchanges between China and the words to express, and not a substitute for the lack of strategic bilateral military mutual trust, mutual non-transparent, mutually wary and suspicious of each other the great reality. Therefore, to promote the Sino-US relations toward the stable, long-term and friendly in-depth development, the two sides need to do more work, rather than one or two high-level military visits can be solved.(edit: SN015)
