US concerned over China’s alleged hypersonic missile test
Washington: The head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Millie, has confirmed China’s alleged hypersonic missile test, calling it a matter of concern to the United States.
It should be noted that the report of the Chinese hypersonic missile test was given on October 16 by the American newspaper Financial Times.
The report said that in August, China tested a hypersonic missile (five times faster than sound or more) that could be equipped with nuclear weapons.
The report claimed that the alleged hypersonic missile made two orbits around the earth while in low orbit and then moved towards its target, however, it fell 30 km away from the desired target.
The next day, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman dismissed the report as inaccurate, saying the test was conducted in July and did not test a hypersonic missile but a reusable spacecraft.
The Pentagon declined to confirm the report, which was published in the Financial Times, but later announced on October 21 that US forces had also successfully tested a hypersonic missile.
Yesterday, General Miliband confirmed the Chinese test of the hypersonic missile, calling it “extremely worrying.”
Hypersonic missiles are considered the most dangerous military technology because they are able to cover a distance of at least two kilometers in just one second.
No one in the world currently has the ability to break this high-speed missile. Currently, only the United States, Russia, North Korea and China have the technology for hypersonic missiles, while India is working very fast on it.
China’s defense and space plans are viewed with concern in the United States and its allies, as China’s rapid development in this area could end American and European hegemony.
