2012年に中国が航空母艦を配備予定とのこと。

China has confirmed for the first time that it is preparing to build an aircraft carrier, a move set to heighten international concerns over the rapid expansion of its naval power.

Beijing announced its step quietly with one sentence buried at the end of a lengthy government publication.

In 2009, China put forward a plan and a programme for building an aircraft carrier,” says China’s Ocean Development Report (2010), a book published in May by the State Oceanic Administration, a body under the Ministry of Land and Resources.

“This shows that China has started entering a new historic era of comprehensively building itself into a great naval power. This is China’s historic task for the entire 21st century,” the report said.


隣国とは領土等の問題を巡っていざこざの絶えない中国だが、こっそり軍備を拡大し、その影響力の拡大を図るしたたかさは流石。
