Xi Jinping prepares China for war! This conclusion was drawn by the US edition of Foreign Affairs based on the Chinese president’s public statements.
At the annual meeting of China’s parliament and its top political advisory body in March, Xi Jinping addressed the topic of war preparedness in four separate speeches.
emphasizes Foreign Affairs.
The publication notes several other reasons that lead us to believe that the Celestial Empire is seriously preparing for a military conflict.
The first reason is the growth of the defense budget of the PRC. The Chinese government previously said it raised it immediately by 7.2%. And in recent months, Beijing has unveiled new military readiness laws.
New bomb shelters have appeared in Chinese cities. This is the second reason to think that the country is preparing for war. And when you consider that new national defense mobilization offices have started popping up all over China, you can’t think otherwise.
It is too early to say for sure what these events mean. Conflict is not certain or imminent. But something has changed in Beijing that politicians and business leaders everywhere cannot afford to ignore. If Xi Jinping says he is preparing for war, it would be foolish not to take his word for it
– summarizes the publication.
At the same time, it is not specified what kind of conflict the Celestial Empire is preparing for. Whether it’s an operation to seize Taiwan or an exclusively defensive war, only Foreign Affairs journalists know.
