BEIJING — China’s state news agency accused the United States Thursday of “exaggerating” the threat posed by its military, after a report said the Asian nation was expanding its maritime power.

The US defence department said in its annual report to Congress that China was increasingly focused on naval power and had invested in hi-tech weaponry that would extend its reach in the Pacific and beyond.

Xinhua said many people in China found it “weird” that the United States, which spends far more on its military than any other country in the world, should highlight Chinese expenditure.

“The report… exaggerated the threat incurred by China’s military development in 2010 to the Asia-Pacific region,” Xinhua said in a commentary.
