Huanqiu: To Improve Chinese Military Development

Chinese military power would be trapped in a shallow basin if its development could not adjust to the quantum leap of new weapons and equipment as in other countries, says state media Huanqiu Magazine. For example, increasing pressure comes from neighbors such as Russia (about 1,500 billion rubles in arms purchases in 2009) and India (150 billion US dollars to modernize military forces over the next 5 years). “The U.S.’ frequent moves in the Western Pacific region have posed a serious threat to China’s military security. This threat comes from its force in the air as well as from the sea, and even from its power from sea to land.”
