China urges USA to change 'negative mindset'

Just $5 a month.

The decision to withdraw China's invitation was made by Defense Secretary James Mattis in coordination with the White House, according to a USA official, after Beijing's recent deployment of missile systems and the first landing of a Chinese bomber on an island in the South China Sea.

The United States has disinvited China from a major global maritime exercise, saying Beijing's "destabilizing behavior" in the South China Sea is inconsistent with the principles of the US -led drill.

Wang met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Wang Yi says the decision "is unhelpful to mutual understanding" between the two powers, and is urging the change its "negative mindset".

Those islands, which China has enlarged and occupied in recent years, are subject to competing claims from several countries, including Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Ren criticized the U.S. decision as "not constructive" and called on Washington to "focus on the overall situation, abandon the zero-sum mentality, properly handle differences, and try to make the mil-to-mil relationship a stable factor for China-U.S. relations". -China military-to-military contacts, which are both broad and deep without the PLAN's participation in the multilateral exercise.

"Being invited or not can not change China's will to play a role in protecting peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, and can not shake China's firm determination to defend its sovereignty and security interests".

The Pentagon has disinvited China to this year's RimPac, the global maritime exercise.

What might have been effective back then is far less likely to have any effect today.

Since then, China has significantly bolstered its military presence in the disputed South China Sea, despite a ruling by an worldwide arbitration tribunal in the summer of 2016 discrediting Beijing's extensive claims to the region.

During their relationship , Faith says R Kelly also asked her to sign a contract that he said would offer him "protection". In July of 2017, Savage's parents held a news conference asking authorities to remove their daughter from Kelly's home.

Though a disinvitation from RIMPAC is a public rebuke by Washington of Chinese behavior, it nearly certainly is insufficient to induce any change in China's behavior.

The planes are believed to have landed on Woody Island, China's largest base in the Paracel Islands which is also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, according to Bonnie Glaser, a China expert at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Nevertheless, the US does not recognize Chinese claims to the nearby Spratly Islands.

The United States has rescinded an invitation to China to participate in the upcoming Rim of the Pacific exercise off Hawaii, a Defense Department spokesman announced Wednesday.

Of particular concern to Washington is the Chinese naval expansion.

The timing of this disinvitation to RIMPAC is notable too.

Beijing has consistently said the facilities on its reclaimed islands are for civilian use and necessary self-defence purposes.

He criticized Navy leaders for appeasing the Chinese with consecutive invitations to exercise despite increasing Chinese aggression in the South China Sea.

Finally, the RIMPAC disinvitation should not be seen in a vacuum.

In short, while Mr. Trump has been ineptly seeking an unfeasible reduction in the USA merchandise deficit with China, the regime has quietly stolen a march in another theater.

Analysts said the decision to exclude China is another zigzag in the Trump administration's relations with Beijing, which has veered from controversy to accommodation, sometimes day by day.
