China released the latest version of its «Defense White Paper». According to the document, Beijing does not strive for world leadership, military expansion or the creation of zones of its own influence, but at the same time it is preparing to turn its Armed Forces into a world-class army by the middle of the century. Also, despite the fact that in the updated version of the US defense strategy of the Pentagon China was among the key opponents of America, Beijing adheres to the principle of «mutual respect» and even seeks military cooperation with Washington. At the same time, China closely cooperates in many areas with Russia, a direct adversary of the United States.

Also China recalls its rights to the disputed islands in the East China and South China Seas and stands for total nuclear disarmament. So what is China aiming for? There are so many contradictions.
