China’s national defense strategy doesn’t threaten or target any country

China’s efforts to strengthen national defense don’t target or threaten any country, a spokesperson for the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s top legislature, said at a press briefing on Thursday.

When we look at whether a country poses a military threat to others, the key is what kind of defense policy the country pursues, Zhang Yesui, spokesperson for the fourth session of the 13th NPC, said.

China has maintained a peaceful national defense policy that is defensive in nature, Zhang added.
