BEIJING (AP) - China's military says the U.S. is destabilizing the Asia-Pacific region by sending more forces to the area and boosting its alliances with regional partners.

China's Defense Ministry says such steps run counter to regional political trends and damage peace and stability.

The redeployments come as the U.S. winds down fighting in Afghanistan. Beijing sees them as directed at containing China's diplomatic, military, and economic rise.
