U.S. scholars Comments inaugural Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, said concern about China’s development intentions
Kuznetsov aircraft carrier completed the first trials led foreign media attention.
LONDON: “U.S. News And World Report” magazine Web site on August 15 entitled “China’s new carrier to enhance China’s regional influence,” the article. The article said that the U.S. concern is not China’s ability to get through the carrier, but when the Chinese intention to use these capabilities. The following are the main contents:
China’s first aircraft carrier but have not yet completed the first trials to complete the weekend, on Sunday morning parked at the Chinese port city of Dalian. The trials for China is truly a landmark event. But still the world’s strongest naval power in the United States, this is just a reminder that in the future on the road, the Chinese military could pose a greater challenge.
Naval Analysis Research Center, one of China research director David Finkelstein said that China’s development for the United States Navy is not trivial things, especially taking into account the interests of the two countries in the Asia-Pacific region circumstances. He said: “The U.S. concern is not that China is the ability to obtain, but China’s intent when using these capabilities, so China’s ability to not show what people are concerned about China’s intentions.”
In fact, the U.S. State Department last week on the aircraft carrier trials around the lack of transparency regarding China issued a statement. The lack of transparency, observers have speculated: the Chinese army actually trying to do?
in the Asia Pacific region, the United States and the Philippines and Vietnam, China’s neighbors to cooperate in the South China Sea territorial disputes with China in promoting peace. U.S. defense of Taiwan remains one of China’s major regional interests. Therefore, the U.S. Defense Institute Professor Bernard – Cole said, China is likely to be looking to bypass the United States in these conflicts, the strategic opportunities and will not be a trial of strength with the U.S. Navy.
MIT Security Studies Program, deputy director of Owen Cote, China will be difficult to achieve even the U.S. Navy to prevent interference between their close relationship with this individual, relatively speaking, very limited regional objectives. He said: “Basically, they want to prevent our ability to influence its neighbors coercion.”
Cote said, it is a widespread misconception that the development of military power to China and the United States to compete. He said the more likely situation is that China is concerned about their own in the Pacific and East Africa and other regional interests. Thus, even the Chinese army is not strong enough, can not fight with the U.S. Navy, China may continue to move forward. Cote said: “In our view it is a completely blatant behavior, but in any case they may do so because they have other interests to defend.”
Navy consultant Norman wave Palma said that with China’s accession to the club aircraft, and the United States and Russia, Britain and France the company of other major powers, is perhaps the biggest impact on the psychological impact regional neighbors. (Author Jessica Lei Dixi)
