China says it has successfully tested new type of missile

A new guided missile was successfully tested in the Bohai Sea by the People's Liberation Army's Rocket Force, in what the statement said is an effort to increase the service's ability to effectively deal with security threats.

"Considering the type of missile and the test location it is evident that we conducted a firing experiment targeting aircraft carriers, and the warhead possibly featured an electromagnetic pulse that could destroy a carrier's command system, as well as the THAAD system", Song said. Although the missile test may have been scheduled in advance pundits say that it could be intended as a warning to Seoul and Washington.

The operation was created to "enhance the combat skills of the forces" to safeguard national security, the brief statement said, but clearly the move was to display just how powerful their forces were to the world. The US has said in a statement that the system is necessary to guard against North Korean missile threats and has called China's concerns to be unfounded. In order to de-escalate tensions surrounding the Korean peninsula, Beijing has come up with an initiative to call on North Korea to refrain from carrying out further missile and nuclear tests in exchange for the USA and South Korea suspending their military exercises in the region.

"China will continue to actively engage with all relevant parties and put the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue back on the right track of dialogue and consultation", Geng said.

The remarks were made Tuesday in response to media enquiry about a recent missile test. It just said the test was carried out recently.

However, while the DF-26 could be useful against THAAD, China also has several other missiles that are up to the task, he said.

The TV programme also accused the USA of speeding up the deployment before the conservative government in South Korea handed over power.
