Instead of reporting the interview “as it is”, some news outlets spanned it: From AP, the headline reads “China says military arsenal comparable with West” (here), from Boston.com "China says its arsenal compares to West’s" (here) and from Time 'China's arsenal matches that of the West, says Defence Minister" (here)
Actually, General Liang stated the following during his interview:
“After consistent efforts by scientists and researchers as well as China's improving industrial capacities, the PLA's arsenal has been equipped with all major weapon systems on the land, in the sea and air just like other major military powers.”
Through Assumption, there is a perception that all major military powers are located in the “West”. I am sure the Russian would disagree.
