Fox News: It's interesting that other countries wonder why they would be increasing their defense effort at the pace they are and yet not acknowledging it"

Xinhua: He regarded Sino-US military ties as a very important part of bilateral relations, saying that China holds a very positive attitude towards pushing forward bilateral military ties.
