    China responds to Japan's new defense guidelines, says it poses no threat to anybody

    China on Friday responded to Japan's new defense guidelines, saying China had no intention of threatening anybody.

    Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu made the remarks when responding to a question on the subject.

    "A certain country has no right to act as a representative of the international community and make irresponsible remarks on China's development," she said.

    Japan adopted the National Defence Programme Guidelines Friday. Media reports said the guidelines claimed China's military development and lack of transparency were matters of concern to the region and international community, and urged nations to encourage China to act responsibly.

    China unswervingly follows the path of peaceful development, and its defense policy is defensive in nature, Jiang said, adding that China poses no threat to anybody.

    "The fact is that China's development since its reform and opening up, has brought huge opportunities of common prosperity to the world, including Japan," Jiang said.
