Standard

Beijing rebuked the document as “preposterous criticisms of China’s normal defense and military building.”Beijing’s military spending last year exceeded $145 billion, assessed the US Department of Defense on Thursday in its annual report to the Congress. The estimate is more than 20 percent higher than the official Chinese figure.“China has the fiscal strength and political will to support defense spending growth at comparable levels for the foreseeable future,” the report said. “Continued increases will support People’s Liberation Army (PLA) modernization efforts and facilitate China’s move toward a more professional force.”
