Each time China’s Navy enhances its strength, U.S, Japan and other countries would like to ferociously propaganda the “China threat theory”. Facts undeniably show that what the Chinese navy bring to the world is not threat but benefit.
Equipped with many new-style destroyers and frigates, Chinese navy can not only effectively strengthen china’ national and costal defense, but also played an important role in combating piracy off the waters near Somalia where it protected more than 3000 foreign and domestic merchant vessels.
According to the statistics from the Ministry of National Defense of the People’s Republic of China, during its 276-day-long mission period, the frigate Chaohu covered an accumulative voyage of 52,000 nautical miles, safely escorted 666 Chinese and foreign merchant ships, dispelled 405 suspicious vessels, received and escorted 2 hijacked merchant ships released by pirates and rescued one merchant ship chased by pirates, setting multiple ocean-going escort records of Chinese naval warships with shortest preparation time for ocean-going voyage, longest voyage distance by single warship, longest escort time and most escort batches and escorted ships.
Professionally-equipped, China’s 10,000 ton hospital ship “Peace Ark” also conducted its overseas medical mission. During its 87-day mission, the ship’s medical staff provided treatment to people in Djibouti, Kenya, Tanzania, the Seychelles and Bangladesh.
China’s dock landing ship Kunlun Mountain with a huge tonnage, it has unmatched by conventional landing craft ship in space and life, which can play important role in oversee in disaster relief.
For many years, the updating of the Chinese military equipment is considered as the synonym of conducting foreign aggrandizement. While as a responsible power, Chinese navy’ development is to maintain peace and stability in the world not to seek broad expansion. For this sake, china’s navy should develop more rapidly and steadily.
