Reuters News on Dec 16th, The U.S. military has slammed Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for failing to appear at a scheduled virtual meeting related to the Military Maritime Consultative Agreement (MMCA), a regularly meeting with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) since 1998 to conduct on maritime safety. Admiral Phil Davidson, head of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, said in a statement that it was “another example that China does not honour its agreements”.

Recently, U.S.-CCP ties have rapidly deteriorated and reaches lowest point. The confrontations between them include U.S. ‘s action to support TaiWan, slam on CCP’s clampdown on HongKong, accusation of CCP involved in the US election meddling and voter fraud, moreover, the truth of Covid-19 which was lab-made biological weapon from CCP military has astounded the world. At this special time, what are the deep stories behind CCP unilateral closed the military dialogue with US?

  1. The U.S. “South China Sea Strategy”

One of the assumptions for CCP to avoid direct dialogue with U.S. military is the intensive confrontation in South China Sea Strategy. Compiling a comprehensive understanding of CCP military activities in the South China Sea that included deployments of systems to the Paracels and Spratlys Islands, military exercises and operations, deployment of relevant platforms and weapons in the region, CCP has not significantly increased its operational role in the South China Sea but rather its military expansion signaling.

July 13, Secretary of United State Mike Pompeo announced an important shift in U.S. declaratory policy on the South China Sea. The press statement from Pompeo listed specific Chinese maritime claims the United States considers illegal, “We are making clear: Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them”.

The Trump administration made statement that U.S. planned to keep the Indo-Pacific region “free and open” from CCP’s coercion. A new diplomacy to strengthen alliances and partnerships throughout the Indo-Pacific region to counter CCP got support from Asia counties. U.S. intensify its military activities to send deterrent messages to CCP and one of the possible intensive claims is request CCP to remove these illegally military platforms in the South China Sea.

The South China Sea has become a tipping point between the U.S. and CCP which is on the verge of breaking out. CCP is not ready for the aggressive deterrence to trigger a war, therefore, a no-show in the meeting.

2. Taiwan Strait Strategy—CCP’s signal of reunion with military force

A speech delivered in 40 years improving ties activity, Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), has urged Taiwan to accept it “must and will be” reunited with China, and China would not renounce the option of using military force to bring it back.

On Nov. 10, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview that “Taiwan has not been a part of China.” He explained that there was bipartisan support for Taiwan and that the island nation serves as “a model for democracy.” A CCP Foreign Ministry spokesman responded “any behaviors that undermines China’s core interests and interferes with China’s domestic affairs will be met with a resolute counterattack by China.”

Taiwan is in danger with a war risk. U.S. defense of Taiwan remains the best way to secure U.S. interests. To avoid the warning from U.S. on military intervention of Taiwan issue, it might be another consideration for CCP to escape from military meeting.

3. Assistance in Biden’s election, to create a breathing space for CCP regime sustention

LuDe media revealed that The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and allied forces has been validated that the Covid-19 was the lab-made biological weapon from CCP, which will trigger the collective defense clause in Article 5— the NATO to attack the CCP jointly.

There is no doubt Trump will be the final winner of the US president election. In year 2018, the Trump Administration topped an executive order to prevent foreign counties intervene in American election(《Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election》).Based on the execution order, sanctions and crackdowns will be imposed on foreign counites who have interfere in the election. The recent U.S. report, in which identified three foreign countries supposed to intervene U.S. election, CCP as the top one, its doom is sealed.

The CCP got into a helpless impasse, who believed Biden to perform the U.S. present will brings a breathing space. Considering on a precarious state of tension up to the election, the CCP does not appear to make an escalation military confrontation with U.S. at this moment. CCP expects the Democratic candidate Joe Biden will be more inclined to revive the cooperation. Therefore, the last assumption is CCP decide to stop the military talk with U.S. but waiting for a fatal decision after the final episode of 2020 U.S. president election.
