The annual report “on the current and future military strategy of the People’s Republic of China July 17, 2002

The annual report “on the current and future military strategy of the People’s Republic of China was submitted by the Department of Defense on July 12, 2002 to the US Congress. It addresses the current and probably future course of military-technological development on the People’s Liberation Army and the tenets and probable development of Chinese grand strategy, security strategy, and military strategy, and of the military organizations and operational concepts through the next 20 years.” The report states that while the PRC “professes a preference for resolving the Taiwan issue peacefully, Beijing is also seeking credible military options. Should the PRC use force against Taiwan, its primary goal likely would be to compel a quick negotiated solution on terms favorable to Beijing.
