BEIJING, June 24 (Xinhua) -- China voiced concern Thursday over Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan's reported remarks that the military presence of the United States in Japan is an important deterrent to China.

Kan made the remarks during a debate session with leaders of other parties Tuesday, when responding to questions on the Japan-U.S. alliance. He also said he was "paying great attention to China's burgeoning military power and thinking that we must watch out for it."

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a regular news briefing that the Tokyo-Washington alliance, as a bilateral arrangement, should not exceed its bilateral scope and should not target any third country.

"China is a country that sticks to the path of peaceful development. It does not pose a threat to any other nation, and accepts no 'deterrent' from other countries," Qin said.
