|Foreign Ministry Spokesman Kong Quan's Comment on the Contents Related to China in the Quadrennial Defense Review Report Issued by the US Defense Department|
Q: The Department of Defense of the United States has recently submitted its Quadrennial Defense Review Report to the Congress. What's China's comment on the contents related to China in this report?
A: The contents related to China in the Quadrennial Defense Review Report issued by the Department of Defense of the United States unreasonably criticized the normal development of China's national defense, interfered in China's internal affairs, played up "the theory of China's military threat" and misled the public opinion. China is firmly opposed to this and has made solemn representations with the United States.
China resolutely takes the road of peaceful development and carries out defensive national defense policy. We are an important force to promote the peace and stability of the Asia-Pacific region and the world. China did not, does not, and will not pose threat to any country. The United States should correct its wrong viewpoints and practice, treat China's peaceful development in an objective and positive way, stop making irresponsible remarks on the normal development of China's national defense, stop interfering in China's internal affairs and make more effort to benefit the healthy and steady development of China-U.S. relations.
