"We hope the U.S. side will discard its "cold-war mentality", shoulder its own special and primary responsibility for nuclear disarmament, understand correctly China's strategic intentions and take a fair view on China's national defence and military development", he said.

Although the review largely focuses on Russian Federation, several sections are dedicated to the lack of transparency in China's nuclear build-up.

Asking the USA to discard its "cold- war mentality" and take a fair view on China's military development, Beijing today criticised a Pentagon report that cast the Communist giant as "a major challenge" to America's interests in Asia.
