BEIJING: China today slammed a Pentagon report on its military development and security, calling on the US to have “an objective and rational understanding” of China’s military strength.
“We urge the US to abandon its Cold War mindset, take off its coloured glasses, and have an objective and rational understanding of China’s military development,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, referring to the report released on Saturday by the US Department of Defence.
She called on the US to stop issuing such biased report and refrain from any words and deeds that undermine bilateral relations and trust between the two military so as to maintain the healthy and stable growth of military relationship.
In its annual report, the Pentagon said that China has significantly increased its defence budget over the past several decades and now has reached a position to pose threat to the American national security interest in the region.
It said China’s official defence budget last year was $136.3 billion while that of India was $38.2 billion.

Does China require such a large army with such a huge defence budget for peaceful purposes ?
Mongoose (Coimbatore) replies to Saibaba Thadiboyina
can we disband our army spending before we point at some one else? come on guys the strategic concept of MAD is right now the reason for no confrontation. Lets keep the course
with best friend of all weather a certified terrorist and mother to all the jehadi groups, China cannot escape criticism for defence rather offence budget.
truth is always bitter.
The age of West nearly over… Its time for our Asia to Lead.
This is the way to respond to the US of A who thinks that it can comment on any nation in any which way they want. We keep on sending weak signals and the world takes us to be a sissy.
