China has lashed out at a Pentagon report on Beijing´s defense capabilities, saying it is no good for the recovery of severed military ties. In recent years the People´s Liberation Army has issued its own reports on its makeup and mission and has also engaged with the armed forces of other nations through port visits, peacekeeping missions, and joint drills. In China, the Yellow Sea is sometimes compared to the country´s "front entrance" and the South China Sea to its "living room." China has recently called the South China Sea, which connects the Middle East and Northeast Asia, as one of its "core interests," the same as Taiwan and Tibet. Today we are joined here live by Brandon Blackburn-Dwyer, Current Affairs Commentator and Prof. Xie Tao, Beijing Foreign Studies University to talk about Choppy waters around China and Line between chimerica & frenemy.
