US disinvites China of military training in the midst of rising tensions



WASHINGTON – The United States has released China from participation in a multinational naval exercise planned for this summer and further escalates tensions with Beijing, which ranged from trade across North Korea to the military.

The Pentagon led China's rapid military rearmament on disputed islands in the South China Sea for the withdrawal of Beijing's invitation to participate in the large-scale naval exercise Rim of the Pacific or RimPac. Defense Department officials said Wednesday that China's decision to deploy missile rocket missiles and other offensive weapons on the islands is spurring the movement.

The military disagreement comes after President Trump suggested that the Chinese might influence North Korea's recent discussion by withdrawing from a June 12 summit on the removal of the Pyongyang nuclear program. Washington and Beijing are in the midst of a major trade war that is part of an ongoing battle for market access and technology policy.

The conflict over China's military construction on the disputed islands adds tensions between the two to another level of global economic power.

"We have strong evidence that China has used anti-ship missiles, ground-to-air missile systems and electronic jammers in contested areas in the Spratly Islands region of the South China Sea," Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Logan, a spokesman for the Pentagon, said in a statement.

He added that "China's landing of bombers on Woody Island has also increased tensions."

It's the first time China has been released from RimPac, Commander Logan said:

Beijing's militarization of the South China Sea islands, which has been claimed differently by China, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines, has been one for years Source of tension.

During his campaign, President Barack Obama labeled President Barack Obama is weak in the defense of international waters in the South China Sea, where Beijing has begun a sharp military buildup to reclaim land, install runways and transport equipment to reefs and shoals that claims it. Several of Mr. Trump's employees called for China's denial of access to the man-made islands.
