The US and China have signed a rare agreement to strengthen military relationship.  Beijing has said that progress can only be made if Washington respects China’s South China Sea ambitions.

The understanding is a deepening of cooperation between the two countries, following a meeting between Fan Changlong, the vice chairman of China’s Central Military Commission and US Defense Secretary, Ashton Carter.

Fan and US army Chief of Staff Raymond Odierno was the witness in the signing of the dialogue understanding at the National Defense University in Washington, DC.

Washington and Beijing will look to collaborate on issues such as disaster response, peacekeeping, and counter-piracy, whilst entertaining the possibility of the two countries conducting drills together in the future.
