While China doesn't view North Korea

While China doesn't view North Korea as a direct nuclear risk, officials are concerned about what might happen if North Korea threatened South Korea or Japan and the region became unstable, Chang said.

China's nuclear-armed submarines will be "useful as a hedge to any potential nuclear threats, including those from North Korea, even if they are relatively small," he said.The deployment of the submarines could pressure China to assure foreign militaries that its navy chiefs and political leaders can communicate with and control them. Chinese and U.S. ships and planes are coming into greater proximity in the Pacific as China asserts its claims to territory in the South China Sea and East China Sea, risking near misses or a clash.Former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in an interview in January that ex-President Hu Jintao "did not have strong control" of the People's Liberation Army. The "best example," Gates said, was China's roll out of its J-20 stealth fighter jet during a visit he made in January 2010. The event seemed to catch Hu unaware, Gates said.welcome to my website: m-shoesbox

Since coming to power Xi has tightened his grip on the military, taking over as head of the Central Military Commission in November 2012, when he became Communist Party chief. Hu waited about two years before becoming chairman of the commission.

"China is going to have to reassure their adversaries that those submarines are under positive control at all times," said Malcolm Davis, an assistant professor of China-Western relations at Bond University on Australia's Gold Coast.Welcome to m-shoesbox sports shoes online store
