In addition to the confrontation with Russia, the authors of the report point to the likely conflict between the US and China in the Pacific region.

“As part of the process of restoring its power, influence and well-being, China seeks to expand control over the disputed territories within the“ first chain of islands ”in the western Pacific, undermine confidence in the United States as a guarantor of regional security and ultimately establish its dominant role there,” - the document says. Recall that the water area of ​​the South China Sea and the groups of the Paracel Islands located in it and the Spratly archipelago are contested by several states at once: China, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines. The islands are of strategic importance, as they pass the sea routes connecting the Pacific and Indian Oceans through the Straits of Malacca and Singapore.
