high-ranking military delegation will be led by Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Cai handsome low-key arrival in the United States.
the visit should the U.S. military invitation from Beijing, Jinan and Guangzhou Military Region, a number of senior generals in the column, but China and the United States were not on access issues and itinerary to disclose more details. Chinese military analysis Fujima Yao, the background of the visit to the United States to coincide with the U.S. presidential election period, and the Sino-Japanese dispute over the Diaoyu Islands to raise tensions in the region, “On the one hand, China and the United States do not want to do this head-on collision, so by the high-level military exchanges to ease the conflict existing between; same time, the Obama administration (Republican opponent) Romney did not want to seize the so-called ‘China weak’ handle, so this visit to take a low-key approach. “
Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States after the beginning of this year, Sino-US military exchanges of high-level visits to get back on track. In early May of this year, Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie complete line visit to the United States for the first time since he took office; month later, Locklear, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. officials became the first official visit to China in the past four years the post. For that visit, the two sides gave the same low-key approach.
itinerary deliberately downplayed
In addition to the Washington Post quoted Pentagon sources if disclosure of Chinese military delegation’s trip will include the United States, Texas, HU Fort Hood army base, the two sides were not on the official visit to disclose any specific details.
Ma Yao said, the two sides deliberately keeping a low profile is mainly manifested in several ways: First, visit the United States military officer level decreased, the last visit to the United States is the chief of the General Staff Chen Bingde, overwhelmed by the Cai handsome, Deputy Chief of Staff, will lead a delegation; Secondly, the itinerary of the visit deliberately low-key approach, the last visit, the United States announced a high-profile Chinese military officer to visit the details, and this obfuscation; once again, access locations also have some reservations.
“said the Chinese and U.S. militaries are least likely to contest the armed services is the Army.” Ma Yao said. Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored corps resident of the United States, the base of the 52,000 soldiers stationed in the beginning of 2009.
been strategic interaction suspected carefully so that the two sides of the contact. “Washington Post” said U.S. Secretary of Defense visit China’s Second Artillery Command only twice the agenda of China’s Second Artillery Corps commander’s visit to the United States has been “failure to implement”. In May last year, U.S. President Barack Obama signed the bill, can not be accommodated at the Chinese people to visit the American Space Center. In October last year, the person in charge of China’s Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the U.S. manned space launch site visit plan to thwart U.S. Lawmakers aground, but even the most tense period in the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union in the field of space still spacecraft docking in close cooperation.
analysts believe that communication not avoid the topic of the visit, the U.S. strategic shift and the South China Sea tensions as the two most influential countries in the Asia-Pacific, the two armies on the major issues and each other strategic intent to communicate timely help to avoid strategic misjudgments.
“in the U.S. presidential election in full swing, attack China has become a means of scoring, the Obama administration insists invited the People’s Liberation Army generals to visit China, and also shows that such exchange is fruitful, at least to get China and the United States high-level recognition. “Ma Yao said.
According to Xinhua News Agency, the visiting American delegation, including chief of staff of the Beijing Military Region Wang Ning, deputy commander of the Jinan Military Region of Jinan Military Region Air Force commander, Cheng Chun-liang, JIA Xiao Wei, chief of staff of the Guangzhou Military Region, the General Staff Strategic Planning Ministry Vice Minister Chen Shoumin.
Ma Yao, China sent military region official trips abroad, indicating that China and the United States to be resolved through the exchange and discussion of some important issues. “China and the United States in the marine sector intersection possible under the Jinan Military Region, China’s North Sea Fleet, the South China Sea Fleet under the Guangzhou Military Region, sent a senior general of the Military District, people feel this pragmatic attitude of the Chinese.” He told reporters. “Such exchanges at least shows that China and the United States are recognized in the maintenance of peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, the two sides have common interests, but also conducive to the stability of surrounding security environment.”
<p the United States and Australia alliance between speed
At the same time, as a “turn to the Asia-Pacific key part of the strategic alliance between the United States and Australia has been accelerating.

Mark repair, this appointment is an extension of the Australian-US military cooperation. Other allies also expressed interest in the case of this opportunity under the Pacific expert Boolean apparently more in line with the intention of the U.S., because he was well aware of the complexity of dealing with other U.S. allies. More importantly, this the appointment fit the strategic focus shifted to the Asia-Pacific region this strategic considerations.
Australian Foreign Minister Carl again to send more troops to the US-Australia Agreement tough stance, claiming that U.S. Marines stationed in the north of the country, is Australia’s sovereign choice, China must be respected.
