Terrorism no longer priority in new US Defence Strategy


WASHINGTON - The United States has unveiled new defense strategy shifting its priorities from terrorism to countering China and Russia.

Presenting the new strategy in Washington, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis also called China and Russia “revisionist powers that “seek to create a world consistent with their authoritarian models.”

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking at a news conference at the United Nations, said the United States is using a confrontational approach.

He said we are open for dialogue and prepared to discuss military doctrines.

China’s US embassy while criticizing the strategy, said Beijing seeks global partnership not global dominance.
