China reaffirms its missile interception test defensive

CHINA'S missile interception test Monday accorded with its defensive military strategy, said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu today.

China conducted a test on ground-based midcourse missile interception technology within its territory yesterday.

"The test was defensive in nature and targeted at no country," said Jiang, adding it was in line with the defensive national defense policy that China had always pursued.

China had always taken the road of peaceful development and its strengthening of national defense construction was for the maintenance of national sovereignty and security, she said.

The test would neither produce space debris in orbit nor pose a threat to the safety of orbiting spacecraft.
