Gen. Paul Selva: DoD Works to Maintain Technological Superiority

Paul Selva

Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the Center for a New American Security’s annual conference that the Defense Department is developing technologies to maintain U.S. military superiority against China, DoD News reported Thursday.

The U.S. Air Force general emphasized that the goal is to prevent China from surpassing U.S. technological capacities by the 2030s.

With China and Russia making efforts to offset American military might, the U.S. needs to protect the capacity to support national interests through American power, he said.

“Make this a competition, not a conflict, and checkmate them or prevent them from getting so much an advantage that they can prevent you from doing the things that are in your national interests,” he added.
