Washington (Associated Press)-A senior defense official said on Tuesday that due to fear of Donald Trump’s behavior in his last few weeks as president, senior US military officers called his Chinese counterparts twice to assure him The two countries will not go to war suddenly. An excerpt of a book will describe these conversations.
Mark Milli, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told General Li Zuocheng of China’s People’s Liberation Army the United States would not strike. The first call was made on October 30, 2020, just four days before Trump’s victory. The second call took place on January 8, 2021, two days after the U.S. Capitol was occupied by rebel supporters of the CEO.
Trump claimed that Millai, if true, should be tried as treason.
According to Robert Costa and Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, Milly had promised Lee that they would warn each other if the United States launched a military attack. The book was provided to the Associated Press. The Washington Post reported the details of this book Tuesday. The book will be published next week.
Milly assured him that the US government was stable and everything would be fine in his first telephone call. This conversation was based on the book. “We won’t launch an attack on you or take any kinetic action against you.”
“If I am going to attack you, I will call your in advance. According to reports Milly stated that this would not be a surprise.
Defense officials claim that the two messages Millai sent to Li were promises. The official questioned Millai’s suggestion to tell Li that he would call him first, instead saying that the chairman pointed out that the United States would not suddenly attack China without warning—whether through diplomatic, administrative or military channels.
Millay spoke with several other defense ministers from around the globe in the days that followed the January 6 riots. These included military leaders from Pakistan, Russia and the United Kingdom. These calls were read in January to refer to “several”, other colleagues with which he spoke. They used similar information to ensure the strength and control of the US government.
The second call was intended to alleviate Chinese concerns regarding the January 6th incident. According to the book, Milly did not promise Li that he would be calmed down once he had achieved 100% stability. Everything is fine. But democracy is sometimes sloppy. “
Trump made a strongly worded statement Tuesday denouncing Milli and insisting that he had never thought of attacking China.
But he stated that if this report is true, he believes he’ll be tried as treason. Trump will talk to his Chinese counterparts, and tell China about the “attack incident”.”‘Can’t do that! “
Trump stated, “It’s time to take action against Millie right away.”
