Samuel J. Locklear, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM), said on July 11, 2012 that his visit to China marked a "new beginning" of the U.S.-China military relations. This visit made him more convinced that both the U.S. and China are able to work hard on pushing the relationship between the two militaries back on track on the basis of expanding consensus.

In an exclusive interview by the American Forces Press Service of the U.S. Department of Defense, Locklear said that during his visit to China at the end of June in 2012, he held talks with such senior military officials as Liang Guanglie, minister of national defense of the People's Republic of China, and Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), among others. Both sides have recognized that the establishment of a positive relationship between the U.S. and China will serve the interests of the whole world, while building up a good military relationship between the two sides will play a key role in it. His visit to China served precisely the purpose of establishing a new beginning of good U.S.-China military relationship, and the two militaries will hold frank dialogues in future.

Locklear expressed that the U.S. side hopes to strengthen U.S.-China military contacts in order to prevent misjudgment. It is expected that the both sides can transcend divergence and focus on common interests of the two sides so that a more positive path can be established for the development of the bilateral relationship.
