On July 20, 2010, China News Service (CNS) (http://www.chinanews.com.cn/), a state-level news agency in China, published an article which cited content from Hong Kong Ta Kung Pao newspaper (www.takungpao.com). The article was about China’s first military exercises from July 17 to July 18 giving emergency support to guarantee wartime marine transportation and weapon delivery in the Yellow Sea.
“It is generally believed that the exercise is a response to the U.S. and South Korea military exercises in the Yellow Sea.”
“China sent a strong and clear signal: China’s increased national strength cannot be stopped. China must maintain a peaceful radius and no one can approach close to China.”
