[Global Times Reporter Guo Yuan-dan] Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai announced recently that Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe is scheduled to visit the United States in the second half of this year. The news shows that the normal state of exchanges between the two armies has not been broken, and the relationship between the two armies is still a stabilizer for the development of bilateral relations.
On August 1st, the official website of the Chinese Embassy in the United States issued a message that the Chinese Embassy in the United States held 91st anniversary reception at the US embassy in July 30th. Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, said that in the second half of this year, China's State Councilor and Defense Minister Wei Fenghe, commander of the Navy, Shen Jinlong, will visit the United States. The two armies of China and the United States will make a cake of common interests, grasp the great direction of mutual respect, cooperation and win-win cooperation between the two armies, and promote the relationship between the two armies as a "stabilizer" for the development of the two countries' relations.
Cui Tiankai disclosed information that the current relationship between the two armies maintained a normal state, and was not affected by the Sino-US trade war.
As two great powers in the world, especially since the Sino-US trade war this year, the development trend of Sino-US military relations has been attracting much attention from the outside world. In particular, the small movements of the United States have been frequent since this year: to provoke China in the South China Sea, and to take this as an excuse not to invite the Liberation Army to participate in the exercise of the ring, and to try to explore the bottom line of China through the provisions of the national Defense Authorization Act. In from June 26th to 28th, US Defense Secretary Matisse visited China. This visit is called "positive constructive achievement". But a few days later, two main warships in the United States crossed the Strait of Taiwan, and the last American ship across the Taiwan Straits was in 2007. In July 23rd, the United States Congress agreed on the draft "2019 fiscal year Defense Act" draft, which involved China, including strengthening the defense relations between the United States and Taiwan, and studying China's "tough behavior" in the South China Sea.
A series of actions by the US side in the military have brought a mist to the development of Sino US military relations, which makes the outside world suspicious. From the perspective of high-level visits and military exchanges between the two armies, the relationship between China and the United States is still in normal state. Senior visits include Sino US defense ministers' visits and navy commander Shen Jinlong's visit to the United States. On the military exchange level, the Chinese Ministry of National Defense announced in July 26th that the two armies of China and the United States will jointly host the 2018 Asia Pacific military medical annual meeting in Xi'an, Shaanxi, in from September 17th to 21st. This is the first time China and the United States have jointly organized the event in China.
A Chinese military expert told the global times in August 1st that the high rise visits between the two militaries fully illustrate that the common interests between the two countries are greater than the differences, and maintaining normal exchanges is conducive to the development of the relations between the two armies, and also helps both sides to deepen their understanding and prevent misunderstandings from misunderstandings.
According to Cui Tiankai, Chinese Navy Commander Shen Jinlong will also visit the United States, which is the first visit by a navy commander five years later. The above people said that the navy is the most interrelated military between China and the United States. The Chinese navy has been working on a cooperative attitude and is willing to cooperate with the other countries, including the United States, and believes that Shen Jinlong's visit is an arrangement in the two army plans.
A person familiar with the Sino US military relations told the global times that China and the United States hope the relations between the two armies will go and maintain a good momentum of development. At this point, the judgments of China and the United States are basically the same. Both sides know the importance of the two countries' relations and win a win-win situation.
