外文标题：China to extend offshore military reach to counter 'provocations'
BEIJING: China outlined its defence strategy to boost its naval capability farther from its shores on Tuesday, saying it faced a grave and complex array of security threats including in the disputed South China Sea.
In a policy document issued by the State Council, the Communist-ruled country's cabinet, it vowed to increase its "open seas protection", switching from air defence to both offence and defence, and criticised neighbours who take "provocative actions" on its reefs and islands.
China, which claims most of the South China Sea, criticised Washington after a US spy plane flew over areas near the reefs last week, with both sides accusing each other of stoking instability.

China is going against Buddhism . The answer to global peace is there. Only that China need is to follow basic principles of Buddhism.
If China comes down from its stubborn attitude claiming Indian teritory in Arunachal etc and make healthy compromise with India,the US will not dare meddle in this region.India and China must join hands with sincere friendly relationship along with Russia to avoid US dominance in every corner on the earth.apart from that China must stop nurturing Pakistan,the major cause of irritation/hard feelings for India.

Well Said. Once The South China Sea dispute is settled the Totalitarian Chinese will come after India. Yes, Indian defences need to be ready. Unfortunately 60 years years of Congress Party neglect will take time to remedy!
