    Despite three major obstacles -- U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, close-in reconnaissance and discriminatory laws – a review of China-US military contacts in 2016 suggests that the armed forces of both countries are determined to sustain a relationship despite recurring tensions. Promoted by top-level policies, the two sides should maintain close communication, increase practical cooperation, and manage differences and contradictions.

    If the new president’s military and budget priorities don’t change, the U.S. is likely to lose the leverage it has with allies by underwriting their defense and to start a new arms race when a stronger U.S. military upends the current balance of power.

    Given the apparently low intelligence value of the recently seized U.S. UUV, China may have intended the seizure primarily as a provocation or warning. Though the vessels involved held a low-risk of escalation, the legal precedent is more significant: last Thursday’s incident occurred approximately 50 nautical miles northwest of Subic Bay, nowhere near sensitive Chinese military facilities, and in waters that China has not claimed any jurisdiction over.

    The PLA should not only collaborate in US-led exercises to get familiar with American weapon systems and the tactics they employ, the Chinese should embrace the model and initiate joint exercises of its own. That would demonstrate its readiness both to face foreign intervention and to preserve regional security and stability as it assume mores global responsibilities.

    The joint operations provide Chinese forces valuable opportunities to test their skills and tactics. But if the West is really concerned with China and Russia’s intentions behind these drills, it needs some soul-searching to ask what “common threats’ have driven the two countries to get closer faster than anticipated.

    The China-US military relationship goes beyond its traditional bilateral boundary, and moves into regional and even global arenas. With the Chinese military extending its global reach, it finds more occasions to cooperate with its US counterpart, despite new frictions arising from China’s bilateral disputes with its neighbors, some of whom are U.S. allies. Crisis-prevention management and confidence-building measures have become important new elements in the relationship, crucial stabilizers even in the worst circumstances.

    A visit to China by Pentagon chief Ashton Carter could help increase mutual understanding, dispel some unnecessary misjudgments, and build more political trust between the two countries and their armed forces. For the sake of improving Sino-U.S. relations, the two sides should have grasped the opportunity rather than beating a retreat in the face of difficulties.

    Amid rising tensions in the South China Sea and an impending ruling at The Hague, China will attend the U.S.-hosted RIMPAC 2016 naval exercise, signaling that the vital signs of the U.S.-China relationship remain intact and will be crucial to confronting the global challenges ahead of us.
