China have expressed concern over plans by the U.S. military to deploy long-range B-1 heavy bombers to Australia, according to China’s foreign ministry.
Commander of US Pacific Air Forces, General Lori Robinson, has confirmed that high-level discussions are underway to have American B-1 bombers and aerial tankers stationed in the Northern Territory.
“We’re in the process of talking about rotational forces, bombers and tankers out of Australia (Tindal and Darwin) and it gives us the opportunity to train with Australia“, she told reporters.
Gen. Robinson added that the US Air Force would continue to fly over disputed areas in the South China Sea.
“We are concerned about these reports,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told journalists at a press briefing.
Hong Lei warned the United States and Australia that their military cooperation should be aimed at protecting peace and stability in the region, rather than hurting the interests of a third party.
