New Chinese missile can attack aircraft carriers, THAAD

This proposal is supported by Russian Federation, which has urged Washington and Seoul to reconsider their decision to station THAAD on the peninsula, saying it serves as a "destabilizing factor" that undermines the security and deterrent capacity of adjacent states, such as China, and could tip the existing military balance in the tense region.

A statement by the Chinese defence ministry yesterday said that Chinese rocket forces tested a new type of missile in the Bohai Sea.

The Red Army launched a new type of missile in the sea just off the crowded Korean peninsula.

A spokesman for China's Defense Ministry had telegraphed the exercises two weeks ago during a monthly news conference, saying that China resolutely opposed the deployment of the THAAD system and pledging to continue "real combat-oriented military training and drills" and "operational tests of new equipment and weapons". It said that it was created to intercept incoming missiles from North Korea, Reuters reported. Meant to shoot down incoming North Korean missiles, Beijing has called the system a threat to its own national security.

The Bohai Gulf is the preferred location for such tests because it is Chinese territorial waters, Mr Song said.
