China needs to make better use of technology, science and industry so that it doesn’t have to rely on other countries, Xi Jinping said.
On Wednesday, March 8, President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping addressed the representatives of the People’s Liberation Army and the military police at the annual session of the Parliament demanding better use of defense resources. Reuters writes about it.
“China needs to make better use of defense science, technology and industry to strengthen its military and win wars,” the Chinese leader was quoted as saying.
Xi Jinping urged Chinese laboratories to speed up their research on technologies that can be used in the military. According to him, this is necessary so that the country does not have to rely on other states.
The head of China also emphasized that military supply chains must be more resilient and spoke of the need to expand infrastructure and build national reserves for defense tasks.
Xi says the military should work to address “strategic risks,” but he didn’t specify what he meant.
The authors of the publication noted that Beijing has never given up its ambitions to establish control over Taiwan by military means.
According to the publication, the Chinese media are actively criticizing the failure of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. The Chinese are carefully analyzing the weapons and technologies of the United States, which can be used by Taiwan against the PRC.
Earlier, on March 7, the Chinese Foreign Ministry responded to the US demand not to supply weapons to the Russian Federation. Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gan urged other countries not to interfere and compared the possible future supply of the Russian Armed Forces by Beijing with US arms sales to Taiwan.
American politician and diplomat John Bolton said on March 6 that the United States should review and increase its nuclear potential in the event of an armed confrontation with Russia and China.
