It was China’s turn to speak at the Shangri-La Dialogue security conference on Asia. The provocative harsh remarks against China by United States Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a regional security forum are not helpful for regional peace and stability, an army general heading the Chinese delegation said on Sunday.
In his keynote speech, Chinese Lieutenant General Wang Guanzhong laid out Beijing’s plan for peace and security in the region. He said that he had planned to use the opportunity to elaborate on China’s newly proposed approach and framework of common security and cooperative security in Asia but had to move away from the prepared text to respond.
“My feeling is that Mr. Abe and Mr. Hagel were singing notes in chorus. They were corroborating and colluding and using the opportunities to speak first at the Shangri-La Dialogue to take the initiative to provoke and challenge China,” he told military generals, defense chiefs and scholars.
