CCTV Today experts to connect, to the meeting and the China-US military maritime safety issues for interpretation.
exclusive economic zone in China and the United States over the frequent measurement of air and sea surveillance activities, why should they do? In the end, what kind of interest?
this regard, the well-known military expert, retired People’s Liberation Army General Xu Guangyu, said: Personally, I think, can be expressed in two ways to solve this problem, first of all, very sorry that Americans have a habit of hegemony. We all know that Americans often claim, the sea is the United States, so ingrained in their minds which of that as a powerful country like the United States, he can think of where you go, whatever you think of what to do. So this is a hegemonic habits, I think this is not a good habit. This is a very important reason, why he considers necessary in the South China Sea to take some action, he would take action. He does not take into account other factors. Anyway, I am in your 12-mile territorial sea beyond, I can move freely. International Law of the Sea exclusive economic zone because of the issue on which there are some ambiguities, Americans often use this problem to do that he should not do.
“The second question, very important reason is ingrained in their minds which have a view, is to China as a rival, although sometimes the lips do not say, say China is not an enemy, there is Some voices can say this, but as a military entity on the concept of a considerable number of people inside the idea, so when one saw the rise of China has become a powerful reason that will be the so-called China threat theory, China’s military opaque military spending too fast, excessive growth of sea power, and so thoroughly to understand the reason to be detection of China’s military aspects, in particular, sea and air, so the two causes of such a disregard of some of China’s feeling the U.S., some of China’s rights have been violated and do these things. “He said,
Moderator: US Military Maritime Consultation Mechanism for reducing the U.S. military to detect until the end of our exclusive economic zone, it will be what to do with it ?
In this regard, Xu Guangyu said: I think the consultations, the Chinese side’s point of view is reasonable, I think the U.S. should not lose the greater. What does that mean? Is not because of some sea air, a number of reconnaissance, sonar Ye Hao, Ye Hao radio reconnaissance and so close to China’s territorial waters on a very close distance over the exclusive economic zone in China to make these activities and the sea, he wasted. After taking office, because Obama has made it very clear he believes the Sino-US relations is the world’s most important bilateral relationship. That being the case, they should do more to help China-US relations improve things. So the monitoring of surveillance activities at sea to do security and defense of our maritime military security consultations on this matter you want to solve this problem. Since the U.S. has come to prove that both sides have the will to solve this problem, I think this is a good thing, a good beginning. We start from the specific things to solve the military mutual trust mechanism. Many things that military mutual trust mechanism, the two sides in the U.S. have done a lot of things, such as the establishment of hotlines, high-level visits, exchanges, etc. These, as well as joint exercises (rescue exercises), has done a lot. Why not do that? So my view is that this is a very good beginning to start on specific events, to better promote China-US military mutual trust mechanism to further improve Sino-US relations.
