China is raising global suspicion about its military intentions by failing to acknowledge the true size of recent increases in its defense spending, US Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Tuesday. On his first trip to China as President George W. Bush's defense chief, Rumsfeld is meeting with government officials and senior military leaders in advance of Bush's planned visit next month. A Chinese spokesman said he hoped Rumsfeld's visit "would increase his understanding" of China's policy.
