US needs to abandon its Cold War mentality - Chinese military

Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of National Defense Wu Qian on Thursday called on the United States to decide against implementing the negative elements of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA).

Wu criticized Washington's "groundless accusations" about the Chinese military threat, adding that the US shouldn't judge other countries' military actions considering their military spending. "We urge the US side to abandon its Cold War mentality and its hegemonic logic, stop interfering in China's internal affairs, not implement the China-related negative clauses, and take concrete actions to protect the overall bilateral relations and military ties," he added.

Earlier in December, the US Senate passed the NDAA bill, which includes numerous negative fiscal clauses targeting China, with a vote of 86 to 8.
