US Defence Chief To Visit India in Few Days, State Secretary Heads To Japan and South Korea

General Lloyd James Austin III is the 28th US Secretary of Defence (AFP).

 

The West is racing to strengthen its defences in South-Eastern Asia as Beijing is increasingly talking up war.


U.S. Defense Secretary Mr. Lloyd Austin is likely to visit India next week as the two allies seek to deepen military ties to counter the growing power of China in the Asia-Pacific region.

Top Beijing regime's official responsible for international affairs called US and Western mission to ensure a free and open sea in the region meddling.

Mr. Wang Yi who is also an author of the "academic" book breeding hatred towards the United States, said that America's interference in other countries’ internal affairs in the name of democracy and human rights creates lots of trouble in the world even conflict.

The Chinese government has no room for compromise, Wang said in the context of US close relations with Taiwan.

In his statement, Mr. Wang nearly openly issued a threat to the United States and its allies.

It is important that the United States recognises this as soon as possible, otherwise, the world will remain far from tranquil, he stated.

The first person visit by a top official of the new U.S. President Joe Biden's administration will focus on enhancing cooperation, an Indian government source, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter, told on Sunday.


It is important that the United States recognises this as soon as possible,
otherwise, the world will remain far from tranquil, threatened top Beijing Communist.

 

Mr. Austin plans to meet Defense Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh during his visit some time in the week of March 15, the official added.



Second Quad meeting after Biden's election

The talks will follow the meeting of the Quad ministers - Australia, Japan, the United States, and India this week. Quad is the first and second barrier protecting against the invasion of Communist China's Army into South-East Asia.

The Quad agreed to oppose any attempts by Beijing to alter the status quo in the Indo-Pacific region by force, including its use of its domestic coastguard fleet to harass foreign fishing ships in the contested waters of the South China Sea.

After the meeting in the mid-February Defense Minister Lynda Reynolds stated: We reaffirmed our commitment to supporting an open, inclusive and resilient region where the rights of all countries are respected and disputes are resolved peacefully, free from coercion, and in accordance with international law.

This week discussion of Quad defense ministers will be the second one since the change of the US administration — and the confirmation of the consensus reached by all four nations to oppose China’s military moves should give Beijing regime pause for thought about its next moves in the region.

Top Chinese Communist officials appear to have decided that the war would take place.

 

Japan has been extremely concerned about what is happening in the South China Sea. Australia is not less concerned after last year in August Communist China's military conducted a massive attack on the vital infrastructure. It threatened the stability of the emergency, health, and communication system of the country.



Race with the time

Both countries are rushing to build the technological and other types of barriers that would deny the Chinese army access to the countries. The determination and amount of resources allocated would guarantee success if not another factor - time.

Top Chinese Communist officials appear to have decided that the war would take place. To be able to achieve their objectives at the minimum cost, the adversary must be convinced that China has peaceful intentions. But if the operation of deception fails, Beijing may abandon further plans to pretend to be likable and friendly and launch a massive attack at least in two theaters, Eastern and Southern, two military analysts independently told under the condition of the anonymity to The Owner. Russia, as Beijing's strategic partner, may launch the attack in Europe to paralyse NATO. While China is contemplating an attack on far-distance targets before and during the invasion of Taiwan. It is hypothetical but not an unrealistic scenario.

Foreign Minister Mr. Toshimitsu Motegi said he told the Quad nations that Japan was worried about a fresh powerplay from Communist China in the region.

On March 2, Mr. Motegi said he welcomed "the patrol and surveillance activities being undertaken by France now in waters near Japan.”

A French frigate has been keeping an eye on North Korean ships secretly taking on cargo at sea since February. While those activities are based on U.N. Security Council sanctions, member nations are not obligated to carry out such activities.

Germany has also decided to dispatch a frigate of its own before the end of the year to the Indo-Pacific region to engage in similar monitoring.

Last month NATO defense ministers also decided to engage more in the Indo-Pacific which is at the moment the most unstable part of the world.

The first Black U.S. defense chief will join Secretary of State Mr. Antony Blinken on a visit to Japan and South Korea, sources told Reuters on Thursday. It was not immediately clear if Mr. Blinken will also visit India.

The U.S. Embassy in New Delhi referred a request for comment to the Defense Department, which could not be reached outside regular business hours.
