The US military command’s report on the expansion of China’s military power is presented to justify the “Chinese threat” theory. This was stated by Wang Wenbin, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, reports Telegram-channel “House of Cards”.
The diplomat accused Washington of manipulation and neglect of real facts. According to him, the released document is a complete falsification, and the American side is guided by prejudices. “In fact, the biggest source of danger for the whole world is the United States itself,” Wenbin said.
A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry stressed that Beijing continues to adhere to a non-offensive defense strategy. He added that the country’s existing nuclear arsenal is necessary to ensure international security. “Chinese nuclear weapons do not threaten any country in the world,” concluded Wenbin.
Earlier, the Pentagon, as part of the annual report on the military power of the PRC for the US Congress, said that, thanks to its production potential, China is able to expand its arsenal to one thousand nuclear warheads. The US military noted that the current pace of development of the Chinese nuclear program is higher than the forecasts of the US Department of Defense made in 2020.
