China believes that the United States is the main threat to the international order. This was stated by the press secretary of the Ministry of Defense, Wu Qian, commenting on the Pentagon's report to the US Congress on military developments and the goals of the PRC, RIA Novosti reported.
"Many years of experience show that it is the United States that is the instigator of regional unrest, the destroyer of world peace," Qian said.
A spokesman for the Chinese defense department noted that over the past 20 years, the Americans have unleashed wars in Iraq, Syria and Libya with their illegal actions, and this, he added, has led to the death of over 800 thousand people.
According to the spokesman, the Pentagon's report serves as proof of Washington's intentions to slander Beijing, including the country's armed forces. In this regard, the representative of China called on the United States to treat the national Chinese defense objectively and rationally, and also advocated the development of healthy bilateral military relations.
