China refutes US allegation, on military issues
China here on Monday refutes US defence secretary’s recent claim that China is destabilizing the Indo-Pacific, saying the relevant remarks were just shifting blames in an irresponsible manner, and China’s military development is purely defensive in nature. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks when answering reporters’ questions.
She said that for a long time, the United States has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia Pacific. Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting socalled “Indo-Pacific strategy”.
