Austin: US won't let China reshape international order

United States Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin alleged that China wants to "reshape its region and the international order to suit its authoritarian preferences."

Delivering a speech at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, Austin underlined that the US "will not let that happen," adding that the first step in achieving that is "combat-credible deterrence." He warned Beijing that Washington will "sustain and sharpen" its "warfighting advantages" and "build a more lethal, mobile, and distributed force posture" in the Indo-Pacific.

Austin also claimed he recently told Chinese Minister of National Defence Wei Fenghe in Cambodia that "the United States will continue to fly, to sail, and operate wherever international law allows."
