Central News Agency
Los Angeles, June 26 (CNA) The U.S. Department of Defense is expected to release a report on China's military buildup around the July 4 U.S. Independence Day, the Republic of China's top representative to the United States said in Los Angeles Sunday.
David Ta-wei Lee, who is currently on a brief visit in the southern California city, made the remarks while meeting with a group of Chinese-language media correspondents.
In line with the principles of a Taiwan-U.S. mutual trust mechanism, Lee said, U.S. authorities will brief the ROC representative office in Washington, D.C. before the report on China's military power is released.
The report is expected to include an in-depth assessment of China's military power and strategy and a detailed analysis of its missile and naval force buildup across the Taiwan Strait, China affairs experts said, adding that the report is expected to raise concerns over China's ever growing military threat to Taiwan.
