U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to announce on Wednesday a Pentagon review of its strategy towards China, looking at key areas including intelligence, technology and the military footprint in the region, a U.S. official said, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The review will be just one of several that the Pentagon is already carrying out, on everything from troops in the Middle East to its policy towards NATO.

It comes as both countries are at loggerheads over issues from technology and human rights to Chinese military activities in the disputed South China Sea, with each accusing the other of deliberately provocative behavior.
