General Zhu on U.S. Arms Sales to Taiwan

The State’s Outlook Weekly magazine published interviews of Chinese military figures on U.S. arms sales to Taiwan. Major General Zhu Chenghu of China’s National Defense University believes that it is not surprising to see the increase in China-US friction. “One needs to see that the long-term existence of the Taiwan issue is inevitable under the broad framework of the U.S. strategy toward China. So the long-term and complex nature of the Taiwan issue needs to be understood. In the long run, the U.S. global strategy will not change much." He [Zhu] summed up the U.S. strategy: rely on two treaties (NATO and the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty), base on two continents (Asia and the Americas), control the seas, curb China and Russia, and dominate the world.”
