South China Institute think tank, said the new naval weapons platform in the expansion phase
The article said that the Chinese navy is in the expansion phase, including the aircraft carrier.
United States, “Eurasia Review” Web site published April 8, non-profit think-tank “South Asia Analysis Group” (SAAG) The article said that China was on March 31 released the “2010 Chinese Defense White Paper” (hereinafter referred to as the “White Paper”), but its content is not for the military analysts by surprise. In fact, official Chinese media revealed more information than the white paper.
a senior Chinese official to visit India in a discussion that should not only see the outside world said China should also see China doing; This is how to analyze the “White Paper” at least a good hint. Except for China friendly, constructive and positive discussion, the “White Paper” also revealed a concern worthy of a place outside.
on the previously released version of the “White Paper” at the outset that the international situation is becoming increasingly complex and increasingly fierce international competition, regional conflicts continue to repeat itself, world peace remains elusive. It is noteworthy that the “White Paper” by deleting the previous version referred to “world peace is mainstream” discourse, and that some mild conflict is inevitable. Indeed, worldwide conflict increase, and some benefits and China’s international status and relevant. Today, China is already the world’s second largest economy, the rapid growth of military power is bound to neighboring countries to form a “threat”; and Beijing on the global stage clearly had a more adequate confidence.
as one of five permanent members of the UN, China has the political power to safeguard their own interests. However, military intervention, China needs Western partners. Therefore, China is opposed to military intervention, especially for the armed intervention on the ground of sovereign states. China’s domestic and foreign analysts agree that China’s current economic strength is driven by other countries to support the power, and these countries are gradually being developed ignored.
“White Paper” referred to the challenges facing China and should have the right to:
(1) regarding the concern of China’s neighboring countries, such as the Korean Peninsula, Japan, Southeast Asia and Afghanistan .
(2) Taiwan, Beijing will have sovereignty over Taiwan as China’s core interests; in addition to the territorial dispute with Japan, South China Sea and the border dispute with India.
(3) maritime interests, including the defense of the coastline, overseas assets and overseas staff.
(4) fight against separatism in China face enormous challenges.
article said that China’s defense in the new era of goals and tasks: to defend China’s sovereignty, protect China’s core interests and national development. China’s national defense mission to deal with external provocation defense Chinese territory, territorial seas and airspace rights; safeguard China in space and electromagnetic space and cyberspace interests against “Taiwan independence”, the “East Turkistan” and “Tibetan separatist” and other separatist forces, of course, including defending national security and territorial integrity.
as a supplement to the China’s national defense mission, “White Paper” in detail about the military, network warfare, information warfare and asymmetrical warfare theory.
“White Paper” that the PLA’s all mechanized, and in 2020 the joint force projection and in the information in the progress. The book also mentioned that China is developing new weapons platform, but did not specify the model and its operational capabilities.
“White Paper” with special emphasis on the Air Force and Navy. Chinese military has been aware of, not only for advanced aircraft to defend China’s airspace is necessary for the defense of Chinese airspace at the edge of the interests of its territory as well. The article on the U.S. surveillance plane in China, with special attention to spatial intelligence, but also including China-US plane collision incident in 2001 in the lessons learned.
The article said that China’s new J-20 stealth fighter is considered to be an attack fighter, but Chinese officials say, J-20 can also be used to protect China’s own airspace. The Chinese Navy is in the expansion phase, including the aircraft carrier. Carrier can not only defend the interests of China’s coastline and ocean, but also to ensure that global military running. China has begun to seriously famous ocean strategist Mahan (Alfred Thayer Mahan) predictions about the importance of the Indian Ocean.
“white paper” that the Chinese navy’s role is to military operations overseas, not war; and the Chinese navy in the Gulf of Aden to the anti-piracy operations, and withdrawal of the Chinese workers, for example in Libya to be corroborated. However, given China’s first aircraft carrier will be served this year, and may be equipped with five in 2020, the aircraft carrier, this discussion seems open to question.
order to maintain sustainable development, focusing on energy, raw materials and overseas workers. In 2008, China in Africa is U.S. $ 100 billion fund for this purpose. As the “world factory”, China’s huge economy is export-dependent. China did not have much oil and gas reserves, iron ore and copper for the huge economic wealth does not in terms of consumption, 70 percent of its oil imports from the Gulf region, West Asia and Africa. Therefore, if imports of crude oil can not be guaranteed, the foundation of China’s economy will be shaken, and thus endanger global stability.
“White Paper” on China’s Second Artillery Corps rarely mentioned, referred only to the Second Artillery Corps both have the bomb, also has conventional weapons. It is reported that China is developing a range of over 4000 km ballistic missile may be Dongfeng -41 or variants, modifications can be equipped with nuclear warheads and missiles can be equipped with conventional warheads. While Taiwan’s intelligence agencies, said China recently deployed in coastal Fujian Dongfeng -16 ballistic missiles. Long-range missiles equipped with conventional warheads can be used to attack non-nuclear state or to avoid nuclear war
The article said that reunification with Taiwan as the most important being Beijing’s core interests, if to Taiwan’s independence, the mainland will use force. The above-mentioned circumstances and is unlikely to happen, because there are close U.S. mediation. U.S. military aid to Taiwan is very cautious in order “to maintain the Taiwan Strait military balance.” In 2009, U.S. $ 18.6 billion to Taiwan, including Taiwan’s military aid does not dream of submarines. Meanwhile, China has deployed more than 1,000 nuclear bombs and conventional missile (range of 280 km to 300 km) aimed at Taiwan; has recently deployed a new wind -16. It is learned, will deploy the “aircraft carrier killer” wind-21D missiles. However, recent cross-strait economic exchanges to become the leading, cross-strait tourism is also showing growth, the mutual contacts between the two sides become more frequent. “White Paper” also suggested that the two sides at the right time to hold military exchanges.
view of the international community of “China threat” syndrome, especially for China in 2010 as an international “white paper” will be considerable space for the “military confidence building, “said China’s military build-up is defensive in nature, and that China is friendly with other countries to establish military relations.
“white paper” will be described as military confidence-building development and maintenance of national security and effective way to defend peace in the region. The book mentioned that China and 22 countries have established national defense consultation and dialogue mechanisms, including ASEAN countries, Japan, Mongolia, India and Pakistan, and spoke with India and Bhutan’s military confidence-building measures; also include China and the United Nations peacekeeping the contribution of troops, anti-piracy and non-combat military operations, and so on.
“White Paper” to retain some detail in China between 1993 and 1996, confidence-building agreements with India, China is also mentioned efforts to promote Sino-Indian military relations. India must be wary of military relations between China and India.
“White Paper” in talking about Japan and the Korean peninsula seems to be particularly careful when, for reasons not difficult to understand. Japan on the Diaoyu Islands dispute and the recent Chinese aircraft and ships confrontation with the Japanese vessel, the event is sufficient to show that China’s position. (Sri Lanka years)
