Of course China wants to portray itself as the harmless lovable panda.
Just like the fuzzy USSR bear was blaming Western aggression for its ‘defensive’ posture in invading Afghanistan in 1979.

Well, it was to some degree. Carter’s national Security Advisor Zbignew Brgezinski openly admitted he did his best to make Soviets think into a theory that CIA was backing jihadis into a revolution in Afghanistan to install a militant islamist government.
The whole Soviet military was against intervention but communist leadership has swallowed the hook.
