China should respond to Washington’s new “leaner, meaner” national defense strategy by “unit[ing] with all possible forces” and “strengthen[ing] its long-range strike abilities” to deter the United States, a Chinese state media outlet said Friday.
Recognizing that Iran’s policies are a restraint to the U.S., Beijing also should avoid treating Tehran in accordance with the values of the U.S., the Communist Party-affiliated Global Times added in an editorial commenting on the strategy unveiled by President Obama at the Pentagon Thursday.
The Chinese government has yet to officially react to the strategy, which involves a shift to smaller and more agile military deployments focusing on the Asia-Pacific and Middle East.
The document, Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense, refers to potential attempts by “sophisticated adversaries,” using capabilities including electronic warfare, missiles and air defenses, to deny U.S. forces access to and freedom to operate in certain areas.
