Chinese actions out of step with international norms, diminishes sovereignty of countries: Pentagon

Washington: Expressing concern over recent Chinese actions taken out of step with international norms, the Pentagon has said One Belt and One Road (OBOR) investments could create potential military advantages for China, should it require access to selected foreign ports to pre-position the necessary logistics support to sustain naval deployments.

In a report titled “Assessment on United States Defence Implications of China’s Expanding Global Access”, the report states that Department of Defence is concerned by the actions China’s government has taken that are out of step with international norms, diminishes countries’ sovereignty or undermines the security of the United States, its allies or partners.

“Some OBOR investments could create potential military advantages for China, should it require access to selected foreign ports to pre-position the necessary logistics support to sustain naval deployments to protect its growing interests in waters as distant as the Indian Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean,” the report, which is the second one on China in 24 hours, said.
