U.S. defense chief swipes at China, warns of instability

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan suggested on Saturday (June 1) that China was responsible for a range of destabilising activities in Asia.

Shanahan did not directly name China when making accusations of "actors" destabilising the region, but went on to say the United States would not ignore Chinese behaviour, the latest in the exchange of acerbic remarks between the world's two biggest economies.

He however added he was keen to foster a military relationship with Beijing.

He was speaking in front of regional defense chiefs at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore.

Shanahan also said that technology firm Huawei was too close to the Chinese government, adding that Washington was concerned about cyber attacks and the theft of intellectual property.

The United States has accused Huawei of espionage, breaching trade sanctions against Iran and intellectual property theft.

Huawei disputes all allegations against it.
