Recently, US defense chief esper said at the Munich Security Conference that China is the main competitor of the US. China has built an aggressive military posture, carried out occupation and militarization of the islands and reefs in the South China Sea, developed directional energy weapons and lethality satellites to weaponize the space field, and challenged and undermined the rule-based international order.
Wu Qian pointed out that the above remarks about China by the US side are totally nonsense. In this speech, the United States spare no effort to smear Chinas national defense and military construction, vigorously exaggerate the so-called Chinas military threat, wantonly interfere in Chinas internal affairs and trample on the basic norms of international relations. China expresses its strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to this.
Wu Qian said that on the South China Sea issue, with the joint efforts of China and other countries in the region, the overall situation is becoming more stable and better. However, the United States, for its own self-interest, is reluctant to see the calm of the South China Sea. It frequently sends ships and aircraft to the South China Sea to carry out navigation hegemony operations, and draws foreign countries to conduct targeted joint military exercises and cruises in the South China Sea. Facts have proved that the US side is the troublemaker and destroyer of peace and stability in the South China Sea, and the biggest behind the militarization of the South China Sea.
Wu Qian pointed out that on the space issue, the U.S. sides accusation against China is a complete reversal of black and white, and it is the U.S. side that makes the space field weaponized. It is a well-known fact that the United States is plotting for space hegemony, setting up a special space force, spending a lot of money to develop space combat forces and unilaterally provoking an arms race in space. The US sides smear and slander of China is just an excuse for its military development.
Wu Qian said that on the issue of safeguarding international rules, the United States pursues unilateralism, constantly breaks the contract and withdraws from the group, and constantly escapes or transfers the international responsibilities and obligations it should have undertaken. In recent years, the United States has withdrawn from international organizations such as UNESCO and the United Nations Human Rights Council, and a series of international treaties such as the Paris Agreement, the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue, and the China Missile Treaty. These actions have made the international community see clearly that the United States is the destroyer of the international order and has no right to accuse other countries at all.
Wu Qian pointed out that green mountains cannot be covered, after all, they flow eastward. Chinas development and expansion is an irresistible historical trend. American rumor and slander will only expose their inner prejudice and anxiety in front of the international community. China firmly follows the path of peaceful development, firmly adheres to the defensive national defense policy, and is willing to work with other countries around the world to promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind. We advise the us not to go further and further on the wrong path.
