Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that Beijing believes it is necessary for the United States, Japan and South Korea to be careful in their actions, including military exercises.
“Who are these military exercises aimed at? It is better to ask the US side about this, the parties concerned should act wisely and stop actions that escalate tension and confrontation and undermine mutual trust among all parties.”
He said the parties should stop actions that escalate tension and confrontation on the Korean Peninsula.
The Pentagon said earlier that the United States, Japan and South Korea participated in the launch warning and ballistic missile detection and tracking exercises from August 8 to 14 as part of the Pacific Dragon joint military exercises in Hawaii.
On August 9, Bloomberg, citing the results of strategic military studies of the Analytical Center for Strategic and International Studies of the United States and former Pentagon employees, reported that if the Chinese confrontation against Taiwan turns into an armed clash, the naval forces of the People’s Republic of China, most of the surface of the US Navy and defense forces will be submerged.
