The Chinese military has defended its increased budget of $179 billion for this year, saying it is in line with the challenges faced by the country.

China's defence budget this year will be around 1.27 trillion yuan ($179 billion) against last year's 177.61 billion, up by 6.6 per cent, according to a draft submitted to the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC) on Friday.
