Sino-US relations experts, the Chinese People’s University of International Relations Jin of China news agency reporter Biao Shi, China’s aircraft carrier does not directly affect the Sino-US relations.

China will have the first aircraft carrier to make a lot of people’s attention once again focused on China-US relations. In fact, this direct impact on Sino-US military relationship is not significant. Because from the general practice speaking, from the water to form a combat aircraft built at least five years.

As commander of U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Robert Willard said ? China’s development of aircraft carriers is not surprising, but not an aircraft carrier about Sino-US military relations.
Jin pointed out that today’s China as the world’s second largest economy, regardless of the economic strength or technological strength has reached the basic conditions for the construction of aircraft carriers. Meanwhile, China’s maritime traffic and highlight the growing importance of security, strengthen the protection of overseas interests, needs urgent maritime rights, which makes the need for firmer Chinese have aircraft carriers. Chinese warships to waters off Somalia to escort the largest fishery patrol boat went to the South China Sea exclusive economic zone management action at this stage reflects the response to this demand.
he said, from a legal perspective, although the neighboring countries of China’s aircraft carrier is now showing a high degree of attention, but this does not affect China’s aircraft carrier construction process, which is China’s own rights, no right of other countries interference.

Large developing countries in Asia with India as early as 2006, announced the beginning of the development of aircraft carriers. However, in Jin’s view, China and India development of aircraft carriers is not the same situation. “China has a strong industrial base, construction of aircraft carriers is a natural birth process.”(edit: SN049)
