contacts with China should be the road
Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen has visited China in May this year, this is a return visit to the U.S. Chen Bingde. In the joint efforts of both sides, Sino-US military relations have rebounded to the momentum, this hard-won situation, both sides cherish.
Mullen’s visit of wide public concern, he said the Chinese People’s University of passage: “Today’s China and 10 years ago is different from the next 10 years will continue to change in China is no longer a rising power. In fact, China has become a world power. “
debate whether China is already the world’s largest country, is nothing new, behind this” China’s responsibility, “meaning is obvious. U.S. officials say is important is not what China is a big country, but the U.S. can not really see China as an equal exchange of objects, which is the development of Sino-US military relations is especially important.
in the U.S. all-round, multi-level relations, military exchanges have often lagged behind, often there has been progress in other aspects of the relationship until after the change. Military relations are the most vulnerable, often in an unexpected turn when the first bilateral relations were injured, and injured the most. In addition to the sensitivity of their military exchanges, the fundamental reason is that military movements is often related to the core interests of both sides, and the mentality of the citizens of both countries have a significant impact.
United States should understand that all these years to hinder China-US military exchanges, is not enough transparency in China’s military power or the Chinese put on an aggressive posture. Fundamental reason behind the U.S. public statements always contain the lingering psychological, not when there will be the reality of violating China’s core interests move. A learn to respect his country’s national, to be his country’s respect.
South China Sea issue is to observe the complexity of the U.S. state of mind, the policy orientation of the mirror. Warming of the South China Sea dispute, the United States as the region’s most powerful military presence, the role is not cool, but a show of force and took the opportunity to try to profit from them. Some American media and scholars publicly inciting the U.S. get involved in the South China Sea, “Washington Post” editorial and even asked the Pentagon to give military support to the Philippines. Not long ago, the United States and Vietnam, the Philippines conducted a joint military exercise. Philippines to borrow media, this is a critical moment for the Philippines “comfort.” This man-made trouble in the United States is very wrong approach, so that the situation in the South China Sea more complicated.
Another alarming trend is brewing in Washington and in an evil wind. Many Congress members are stepping up activities in an attempt to promote the Obama Administration to sell F-16C/D fighters to Taiwan. Imagine, if the United States continue arms sales to Taiwan, Sino-US military relations in promoting development efforts will be wasted. Arms sales to Taiwan is the true test of whether the United States relations with China have the key to the wisdom of the times. Arms sales to Taiwan are not resolved, the development of Sino-US military relations can not have a stable foundation, it will inevitably drag the Sino-US cooperation in other areas. China will not naively believe that the U.S. has put China as a true world power to look at. We must not only listen to the Americans how to say, more depends on how the Americans do. Respect for the Chinese, first of all should respect China’s core interests from the start.
should be said, to promote the Sino-US military ties facing a rare opportunity. How to put this opportunity into a reality? This of course requires the joint efforts of both sides. However, it is imperative or the United States to show real respect, mutual trust, equality, mutual sincerity, this is the proper contacts with the Chinese way. “Emerging power” or “has become a world power” worth mentioning that China is China.(edit: SN049)
