The Chinese Government's recent amendments to its National Defense Law indicate that China has shifted its defense strategy to a more pre-emptive posture, making it more likely that it wages war, according to an expert with a government-funded think tank in Taiwan.

The Chinese Government's recent amendments to its National Defense Law indicate that China has shifted its defense strategy to a more pre-emptive posture, making it more likely that it wages war, according to an expert with a government-funded think tank in Taiwan.

According to Focus Taiwan, the assessment was made in a paper by Lin Cheng-jung, a visiting research fellow from Taiwan's military at the Institute for National Defense and Security Research (INDSR), which was posted on the institute's website on January 12.

Lin said that the National Defense Law, which was introduced in 1997, serves as the 'parent law' of all Chinese military laws and argued that through the revisions, Beijing has laid the groundwork for giving legal legitimacy to launching a war.
