  • China and Russia hit back at ‘imperial’ U.S. security strategy

"Cooperation is the only correct choice for China and the United States", ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

In a speech on Monday, Trump identified China as a major challenge to USA global power and influence.

"We cannot agree with an attitude that sees our country as a threat to the United States", the spokesman said.

"At the same time, there are some modestly positive aspects, in particular, the readiness to co-operate in areas that correspond to American interests".

The report referred to Russian Federation and China as "revisionist powers", listing them as "competitors" seeking to alter the status quo that favors the United States.

One new policy proposed: Restricting visas to prevent intellectual property theft by foreigners, particularly Chinese, who travel to the U.S.to study science, engineering, math and technology.

Cooperation between China and the United States will lead to a win-win outcome for both sides, but confrontation will result in mutual losses, China said on Tuesday, after the United States branded it a competitor seeking to challenge USA power.

She noted that China's development depended on the efforts of its own people and its mutually beneficial cooperation with other countries.

The Chinese embassy in Washington, in a statement on its website, urged the United States to seek common ground while respecting differences.

Trump also praised the US -led coalition fighting Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria and said that Pakistan must be more decisive in battling extremism. "And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan".

In the context of India, the new strategy states "We will deepen our strategic partnership with India and support its leadership role in Indian Ocean security and throughout the broader region".

The more nationalistic Global Times, however, was of the view that the US "has now adopted a different view towards US-China relations".

It also criticised what it said was the "imperialist character" of the document.
