Australia struck a conciliatory tone toward top trading partner China as it said that Beijing‘s rising defense capabilities are a natural outcome of its growing economy, according to a new strategy outlined in Australia’s Defence White Paper 2013, released on Friday.

“The government does not approach China as an adversary. Rather, its policy is aimed at encouraging China’s peaceful rise and ensuring that strategic competition in the region does not lead to conflict,” the defense strategy said.

China Stresses Peaceful Development After US Report

China stressed its adherence to peaceful development in response to a U.S. intelligence report predicting that China will surpass the United States to become the world’s largest economy before 2030.

“China will unswervingly pursue a way of peaceful development. China’s development aims at making greater contributions toward peace and development of mankind, as well as a happy life for its people, instead of overwhelming others or scrambling for world dominance,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei.

Hong made the remarks at a regular press briefing while commenting on the report “Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds” issued on Monday by the U.S. National Intelligence Council, an analytical arm of the government’s Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The report said China’s economy is likely to surpass that of the United States a few years before 2030; however, it added that China may not replace the United States on a global level. “Despite the remarkable achievements made since reform and opening-up, China is still the world’s biggest developing country and has a long way to go in realizing socialist modernization. We have a clear understanding of that,” the spokesman said.
