In the three-day visit to China, Gates brought Obama for President Hu Jintao’s greetings and message from the President, the Chinese have the highest specifications for the Gates arranged a series of meetings and talks with activity. Gates a few days after this act of two heads of state met in Washington to create a good atmosphere, but also conveys the Sino-US military relations, “pick up” a positive signal. Opinion noted, has yielded more satisfactory political outcome, but Gates left a little trip or “regret”: The two sides still have differences in some areas, the United States hopes to find out the bottom line of China’s military intentions, the final touch of a “soft nails.”
international experts on the “World News” correspondent pointed out that the U.S. wants China to further military transparency, reflecting the rise of the United States to China to accelerate the strategic anxiety. Gates’ visit to China has been chasing the pace of the reporter also noted that the U.S. security strategy remains the understanding of the Chinese there is a deviation, which is currently hampered by the Sino-US military exchanges a major cause.
Gates Chuaizhuo anxiety to China
recent years, China’s military accused the United States has been concentrated in the two focus on: First, China’s rapid growth in military spending, two of China’s military opaque. Gates’s visit to China on the eve of China’s fifth generation fighter F -20 photos in the network exposure, including the U.S., Western military experts, a large table shocked that the Chinese stealth fighter development process much faster than the original estimate of the time; be Western media as a “carrier killer” Dongfeng-series ballistic missile development and deployment of the status quo, and the actual construction of China’s aircraft carrier and other strategic equipment development process, are also talking about the West. United States is full of advanced weapons to China to accelerate the sound development of the accusations that the Chinese military buildup accelerated, “intended to limit the United States to act freely in the Western Pacific.” High-level military exchanges in the context of the cold, find out the cards became the United States is now China’s most pressing needs.
1 6, upcoming trip to China in Washington, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he hoped to strengthen Sino-US military cooperation on many issues, the U.S. needs China’s growing military strength to maintain attention, “But China is no reason to become a U.S. adversary.” The Pentagon’s assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific Affairs, Deputy Michael Schiffer on the same day revealed that the U.S. has put forward the future development of Sino-US military relations six principles, namely mutual respect, mutual trust, reciprocity, mutual benefit, continuous dialogue and mutual risk reduction. Six principles, one of the “better communication and understanding, to avoid misunderstanding and misjudgment” by the media interpreted as its real intentions are tortuous way through the transparency into the military, secretly put pressure on China.
two days after the United States, “New York Times” reported that Bill Gates in an interview in Beijing on the eve that if China’s leaders that the United States because of the financial crisis and the decline has become a country that they are mistaken. He said, “have two or three times I’ve ever heard people talk about American decline, but my advice is, both in the United States or abroad, and those who believe that the decline of the United States underestimated the tenacity and vitality of the American people will eventually be thrown into the garbage of history heap. “before rendering his visit to the rapid development of China’s military power, while carrot and stick, it seems more eager to understand China United States embody the anxiety.
U.S. concerns with China is very strong
three-day visit, the two countries made a lot of consensus: the first half of 2011, when appropriate, PLA Chief of General Staff Chen Bingde will visit the United States; the two sides in the high-level visits, mechanism projects, institutions, education and other areas planned to carry out exchanges; armed forces in counter-terrorism, peacekeeping, escort and humanitarian assistance, disaster and other non- traditional security cooperation in the field; two sides agreed to hold the first half of 2011 to meet U.S. Department of Defense and the mechanism of Sino-US Military Maritime Consultation Working Group Meeting … … but the “World News” correspondent these days with Bill Gates to visit China interview, observation, U.S. armed forces in some areas of disagreement still lingers.
10, met with Chinese Defense Minister Liang Gates. After the meeting, the two sides held a press conference. “World News” reporters are live. Gates told reporters, “will be established between the United States ‘strategic dialogue’ mechanism, to discuss missile defense, space and networks, and nuclear weapons issues.” Say this, the tone is quite positive. And Liang will add that, “China agreed to the proposal of the United States to study.”
Sino-US military exchanges is undoubtedly the biggest obstacle to arms sales to Taiwan. On this issue, Liang reiterated China firmly opposes U.S. arms sales to the position, and Gates was playing tai chi. “World News” reporter asked Gates confirmed that the Pentagon has decided to sell Taiwan 226 Army Tactical Missile new things, and ask him to answer how to treat the problem of arms sales to Taiwan military relations. Gates responded by saying, “This is the former President Bush during the sales order, these missiles are air defense missiles, is defensive.” Reporter, but he did not respond to the second question, the conference then ended.
military experts, Rear Admiral Yin Cho on the “News of the World,” told reporters that the United States and China want to set up a regular mechanism to understand each other’s strategic intent, because “Although we are not in a military echelon with the U.S. But as China’s comprehensive national strength, the United States that long-term look at China’s military strength may be a challenge to it, so to strengthen prevention, on China’s military build-evaluate the development of China’s military intentions for strategic pre-judgment. “Yin Cho said that despite the peaceful rise of China has repeatedly stressed, Liang will also in the press conference that China’s military development is to safeguard the sovereignty and security needs, but the United States” do not believe in politics, it also considered in the estimation and . ”
China Institute of Contemporary International Relations researcher Yang Mingjie also believes that the U.S. understanding of China’s security strategy there is a deviation, which is still the development of the Sino-US military relations a key issue.
Gates why touch “soft nails”
January last year, the U.S. government sold to Taiwan about 64 million weapons, serious damage China’s core interests, China has made high-level military exchanges between China and the U.S. to postpone the decision. The U.S. aircraft carrier vessels and planes continued to arrive in China for nearly investigation activities, but also to set up obstacles to Sino-US military exchanges. Late last year, the U.S. and Japan, South Korea in the Yellow Sea and the Sea of ??Japan large-scale joint military exercises, once again hit China’s peripheral security interests. Just last December, the Pentagon agreed to sell to Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates 226 manufactured by the Lockheed Martin’s new tactical missiles and 24 sets of the missile launch platform.
China security expert at National Defense Strategy Meng Xiangqing told “World News” reporter, high-level military exchanges between China and the U.S. fully responsible for the United States intermittent. “We remain most concerned about the sustainability of China-US military exchanges and healthy development, but must first resolve, the U.S. continued to sell weapons to Taiwan (the problem), the United States can no longer hurt China’s core interests on the Chinese people’s feelings.” military relations, as in the development process from time to time “trouble” party, the United States should “take action first, to show sincerity.”
in bilateral exchanges, the United States the change inherent in the idea. Academy of Military Science researcher Zhao Xiaozhuo world military research on “World News” said: “The United States has always maintained that communication is the basis of mutual trust through exchanges can reduce both the likelihood of false positives, but in fact, trust is the U.S. military exchange premise, if you do not respect each other’s core interests and major concerns, how can the Sino-US military relations and healthy development. “
the U.S.” power diplomacy “emboldened enough
Gates’s visit, China has not agreed to the United States to establish a “strategic dialogue depth” requirement, many people exclaimed: China to the United States’ power diplomacy “more and more concentrated flavor. Experts said that from the collision of the two countries in recent years is not difficult to see that China adhere to the principle of more and more.
China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, Associate Professor of American Studies Liwei money on “World News” the reporter said, beginning to show “power diplomacy” with China’s development has a direct relationship. “Strength increase, the range of interest, the density would certainly have been extended as a long sub-space is even greater need for the same time, the strength of growth, the national sense of national pride will be enhanced accordingly, requested the international community to China more respect, therefore, Chinese people are now emboldened enough to speak a little, is understandable. “
But China’s rapid development and getting more and more emboldened, leading to a number of countries including the United States has changed the mentality of seems not read Chinese, there is no psychological preparation. Perhaps, the Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said during the last two words give the best explanation: “deal between countries, it is important to look at is not Zhanli of China’s foreign safeguarding national sovereignty, security and development interests, to promote world peace and development of responsibility, this is the reason China’s diplomacy and I think this is upheld by norms governing international relations manager. “(Source: International Online -” News of the World “)
