US, China reach deal to reduce miscalculation

US, China reach deal to reduce miscalculation

The visit is a part of his Asia tour, which started earlier this week in South Korea and will conclude in Japan, and follows fears of a military conflict between North Korea and the United States after a verbal spat between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un earlier in the week.

American and Chinese military leaders have announced a commitment to "work through hard issues" to strengthen military ties and improve bilateral relations between the world's two largest economies.

"But most of those mechanisms typically focus on policies, military building or exchanges on a specific issue or a branch of military", Col Zhao told China Daily.

Top US and Chinese military commanders have signed a deal to improve communications between the two forces amid ongoing disputes in the South and East China seas.

Joseph Dunford met with his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Fang Fenghui, on Tuesday in Beijing, where the two signed an agreement on improving communication between the American and Chinese militaries. Somewhat unusually, the meeting has been reported on by Chinese media in detail. Just $5 a month.

Champions League play-offs first leg concluded
Sergio Escudero opened the scoring for Sevilla after 16 minutes with Eljero Elia getting the equaliser after 64 minutes. However, Ben-Yedder grabbed the goal which gave Sevilla an important away win.

While in Beijing, Dunford will also meet Chinese officials to discuss US-China military cooperation and the Korean Peninsula situation. "The Chinese military is willing to work with its USA counterpart to strengthen mutual understanding and trust, deepen cooperation and manage risks and differences in an appropriate and effective manner".

"We share a commitment to work through these hard issues", he added, without elaborating. "As we start these meetings, having the framework for dealing with these hard issues is different than making progress on them", he said. "With the guidance from our presidents and the areas of our cooperation, I know we will make progress over the next few days". I think our collective challenge is to sincerely and with candor attack these issues that we have to address... Dunford told Reuters that his goal was to improve the USA relationship with China and solve the current crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

The United States has expressed concern about what it calls unsafe intercepts of US aircraft by the Chinese air force and a lack of transparency in China's military spending, China being in the midst of an ambitious military modernization program.

It's obvious that the USA side didn't expect too much out of the new communication mechanism and "reducing the chances of miscalculations" is the priority.

Such communications are especially crucial now, officials said, "as the region and world are facing the dangers of a nuclear-armed North Korea".
