The US Department of Defense has come up with new initiatives against Russia and China

Mark Esper, head of the Pentagon, said he was introducing two initiatives to counter China and Russia.

He said this at an online conference.

“Today I would like to share with you two recent initiatives that will help us: the first is the introduction of a completely new Alliance and Partnership Development Guide (GDAP), and the second is called Modernising Defence Trade”, –  Esper said.

He says these initiatives will help “maintain order in the world and promote sales of American defense products. In fact, the U.S. is simply trying to introduce its own rules of the game aimed solely at giving Washington an edge.
