ible missile deployment 阿拉爱上海ncerns in Asia-Pacif

Possible missile deployment raising concerns in Asia-Pacific, Beijing says

The United States’ intention to deploy new missiles in the Asia-Pacific region has raised co 阿拉爱上海

ncerns, and China will take countermeasures if necessary, the Foreign Ministry and experts said.

 阿拉爱上海女神会所Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry, said China will not “sit idly by” and wat

ch its interests being compromised if the US deploys intermediate-range missiles in the region.

She said China “will not allow any country to stir up trouble on 阿拉爱上海

our doorstep” and “will take all necessary measures to safeguard nati

onal security interests” in a statement published on the ministry’s website late on Monday. 阿拉爱上海女神会所

The comments came days after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty sig

ned with the Soviet Union in 1987, which banned land-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. 阿拉爱上海

Following the withdrawal, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said over the weekend

that he wanted to deploy midrange conventional missiles in the Asia-Pacific within months.

 阿拉爱上海Hua warned that international and region

al security will be severely undermined if the US insists on the deployment.

“For a long time, the US has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia-Pacific,” she said.

“Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting a so-ca 阿拉爱上海女神会所

lled Indo-Pacific strategy. It has adopted a selfish, beggar-thy-neighbor approach in econo

mic affairs while making military deployment and strengthening military allies in the region.”

 阿拉爱上海The US has been shifting blame by using China as an excuse on issues including the INF

Treaty and hyping up the so-called China missile threat in disregard of the facts, Hua said.

“Despite strong international opposition, the US chose 阿拉爱上海女神会所

to withdraw from the INF Treaty. Now it is hastily seeking to deploy interm

ediate-range missiles in Asia. This, in fact, reveals the real intention of the US withdrawal from the treaty,” she added.
