中广网 Beijing on May 12 news (reporter Li Yan) The Voice of China, “Defense Time” reports: May 9 and 10, third round strategic economic dialogue held in Washington in the United States, compared with the first two rounds, first invited senior Chinese military representatives of a spectacle. Chinese People’s Liberation Army Deputy Chief of Staff Ma on behalf of the sky will, on behalf of the U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Willard, both high-level military representatives in the strategic economic dialogue with significance? This topic, the National Defense Strategy Institute, Major General Jin Yinan Li Yan told reporters interview conducted in-depth analysis.
U.S. military representatives that the two sides become more rational
Jin Yinan that involved members from the two sides can clearly see that the interests of China and the U.S. Point is expanding, or are clearly expanding, it could be the problem points, the expansion of contradictions. Two countries, Sino-US stakeholders, although the two sides of the political system, ideology, strategic pursuit of a completely different, but economically the two countries forged close ties, the bilateral trade volume of nearly $ 400 billion. Internationally, the volume of trade between two sovereign states is so large, unprecedented in world history, this is a very new situation.
the development of Sino-US relations in recent years, I have called the Strategic Economic Dialogue, no one “and” word. In fact, this “and” word is very particular about the very meaning of. Had long been confined to the dialogue between China, economic problems the dialogue on economic issues only, which means that the strategic dialogue on economic aspects. From 2009, began to change in 2010, from the financial crisis, the two sides to reach a consensus. Strategic economic dialogue, not just the economic aspects of the strategic issues, but also strategic and economic issues of the dialogue.
before a member state to participate in the country, no army representatives, Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of staff to participate in this year is a very big progress. Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of staff turned out to be president of the National Defense University, this year as China-US strategic economic dialogue with members of the delegation to participate, not only the glory of the National Defense University, also shows the comprehensive China-US relations, not only economic, but including diplomatic, political, and military.
Sino-US military relations may be the most sensitive and most vulnerable, once a problem, both sides can not help but take some measures to stop the interaction, or relationship between the recovery time is very long relative to distrust the military . Today, China-US strategic economic dialogue, not a substantive progress, but it is the understanding of Sino-US relations become more and more rational – rational handling Sino-US relations, but this is not only economic relations, but includes political, diplomatic , a comprehensive military relationship.
Taiwan question is the most divisive issues of Sino-US
Sino-US strategic economic dialogue involving the military question is how to respect China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity. China does not require coordination with the United States in Africa, the Pacific, the Americas, Central Asia’s interests. As a superpower, the United States to maintain global freedom of movement, the so-called important resource for the world, an important channel for the control of all the world. While China pursues an independent sovereignty, territorial integrity and national dignity, which is both a very large differences.
Jin Yinan that U.S. Americans are most reluctant to talk about the Taiwan issue, most do not want to touch, and is willing to talk about other issues. Of course, if China and the U.S. on the Taiwan issue can not be mutual understanding, mutual respect, it will be very troublesome. Because of Taiwan involves China’s core interests, Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory. The face of such a sensitive, crucial issue, China’s rulers do not have any hesitation. For the United States, Taiwan in the United States thousands of miles away, as a U.S. strategic chessboard pawn, he did not want to give up and hope that it play a role. So, if the differences between China and the U.S., this is the biggest problem.
the interests of both countries at this point, if not mutual understanding, mutual understanding, mutual respect, especially respect for the United States for China, Sino-US relations will bring a lot of trouble. Because it affects more than just two sides of the military relations, will be directly reflected in the political relations, economic relations and even to go.
US security dialogue is different from the “Soviet confrontation”
White House National Security Council, Jeffrey Bader, director of Asian affairs before that, China-US security dialogue, the level below the then Soviet Union.
Jin Yinan that this estimate a bit too high. From both sides of the balance of power perspective, China did not achieve the degree of the Soviet Union. Strategy and weapons when the Soviet Union, both sides are basically evenly matched, the Soviet warheads than the United States than the U.S. carriers more than the Soviet Union.
level of strategic weapons, a far cry from China and the United States. Compared to the year the Soviet Union against China’s strength lies in US-China economic relations. That year, the United States and the Soviet Union divided between independent political system, military system and economic system, almost no contact with the two sides, small economic trade relations. Today, a large U.S. trade relations, trade between the two countries reached $ 400 billion. This is far below the Soviet Union, far behind. So, today’s Sino-US relations, U.S. relations with the Soviet past have completely different characteristics. If the analysis of Soviet-American relations in the past, can not effectively understand today’s China-US relations, and can not control this completely different relationship.
