Ulterior motive in aggravating regional situation in Asia-Pacific

Date: 05/12/2021 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

The US has got more pronounced in its moves to step up redeployment of its military strength in the Asia-Pacific region.

When the US and Japan conducted military exercises from November 21 to 30 in the waters off China, bringing in even warships from Australia, Canada and Germany, the Global Times of China denounced it as an act of creating an atmosphere of encircling the country and threatening peace in the region.

In early September, the US defense secretary, at the first press conference after the US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, asserted that the US would concentrate special efforts on eliminating security threats from China. After that, he maintained that the US Congress should continue to increase investment in improving the military posture and capacity of the US forces in the Asia-Pacific region.

Accordingly, the US staged joint military exercises, the largest ever since the Cold War, in rapid succession by mustering the members of “Quad”, the UK, France, Germany and the countries in the region. In particular, it has conducted not long ago a military exercise against submarine and torpedo warfare together with the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force by dispatching its naval forces to the South China Sea.

Worse still, it is trying to involve more countries and forces in forming the encirclement ring around China by stirring up public opinions about the remarks made by the former US government officials including ex-deputy assistant secretary of the US Defense Department and experts who said that “Quad” should be converted into an “alliance against hegemony” to counter the geopolitical ambition of China.

Such a tendency shows that the US administration has now entered a serious stage of beefing up its military strength in the Asia-Pacific region after reaching a conclusion that it is a prerequisite to containing China.

It also betrays the ulterior motive of the US to deter China militarily by converting “Quad” into a military alliance and building an “Asian version of NATO” based on it.

The international society should see through and stand on the highest alert against the aggressive nature of the US which is deliberately aggravating the regional situation to find an excuse for holding sway over the Asia-Pacific region.
