China adopted ‘more dangerous’ tactics in 2022 as ‘only competitor’ to US, Pentagon warns in new report

The Pentagon said China adopted “more dangerous, coercive and provocative” actions in the Indo-Pacific this year — as well as “risky” intercepts against U.S. aircraft in the region.

The Department of Defense released its annual report on China’s military power this week, warning that the People’s Republic of China views its “no limits” partnership with Russia as “integral” to advancing its development and emergence as a “great power.”

China aims to become a “national power” and achieve “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” by 2049, the Pentagon said.

The Pentagon said that while it continues to monitor China’s evolving military strategy, the United States, along with allies and partners, “will continue to urge the PRC to be more transparent about its military modernization program.”

“The Department remains focused on the operational concepts, capabilities and resources necessary for meeting this pacing challenge,” the report states.
