China's state media has criticized the United States' major strategic shift into Asia-Pacific, accusing Washington of being a troublemaker responsible for tensions in the region.

"While boosting its military presence in the Asia-Pacific, the United States should abstain from flexing its muscles, as this won't help solve regional disputes," said an editorial published by China's state-run Xinhua news agency on Friday.

Xinhua warned that any American militarism in the Asia-Pacific region will “endanger peace instead of enhancing regional stability.”

The warning came a day after US President Barack Obama unveiled a defense strategy to expand the country's military presence in the Asia-Pacific and switch the Pentagon's focus to the Far East.

Obama claimed on Thursday that while the US military is in a "moment of transition" after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the government will "maintain our military superiority."

China is concerned that Washington's new defense posture is aimed at encircling Beijing. There are riding concerns in the United States about China's growing military stature during the recent years both in size and capabilities.
