Panel urges US scrutiny of China military, firmsAdvisory panel urges administration, Congress for more scrutiny of Chinese military and firms
WASHINGTON (AP) ' A congressional advisory panel is urging the Obama administration and Congress to apply more scrutiny to Chinese military expansion and signs of aggressiveness. The group also wants a tougher U.S. stance against what it calls "anticompetitive" Chinese trade policies.
As President Barack Obama announced a new security agreement with Australia aimed at Chinese military moves in Asia, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission warned Wednesday that the Chinese military buildup is aimed squarely at countering America's defenses and exploiting weaknesses.
The panel urged Congress to direct the Government Accountability Office to evaluate the ability of the Pentagon's early warning system to detect an attack from China. The group also said suspected Chinese cyber intrusions remained high in 2011 and may have interfered with at least two U.S. space satellites.
