According to the report, the US has 375,000 registered members of its Indo-Pacific Command, including 60% of its Navy ships, 55% of its Army and two-thirds of its Marine Corps. In addition, with 85,000 forward-deployed soldiers and a large amount of highly-advanced weaponry, the US military has persevered its sheer domination in the Asia-Pacific over the years.

The GT report says that in 2020, the US took a range of activities to restrain China which included COVID-19, Hong Kong, Taiwan, high-tech and defence. Recently, US warships have frequently intruded into Chinese territorial waters, held operations in the South China Sea and crossed the Taiwan Straits.

Given their close connection with state-to-state relations and national security, it is certain that dispute and even worsening military ties between China and the US would considerably enhance the probability of a war or conflict,  the report reads.

China has been carefully managing its military ties with the US in accordance with the policies of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win collaboration, and the two nations need to focus on managing their disagreements and limiting conflicts, said the report.
