Biden calls for China review during first Pentagon visit

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is highlighting plans for a Pentagon review of national security strategy on China as he underscores his desire to recalibrate the U.S. approach with Beijing. Biden’s call for a new task force to review strategy comes as the U.S. faces increasing challenges posed by China’s modernized and more assertive military. The president announced the review Wednesday during his first visit to the Pentagon as commander in chief. Defense Department officials described the review as a “sprint” effort that would weigh U.S. intelligence, troops levels in the region, defense alliances with China, and more.
