Beijing Holds Successful Missile Defense Test as Tensions with Korea Rise
Local Editor

China announced Tuesday it successfully conducted a test of a ground-based missile defense system amid rising tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Concerns over a potential conflict with nuclear-armed North Korea is growing following a series of bellicose statements between Washington and Pyongyang.

Monday's test of the mid-range missile system "achieved its anticipated goal" according to a brief statement by the Chinese defense ministry.

"This test was defensive. It does not target any country," it added.

The US deployed a missile defense system, known as THAAD, in South Korea to guard against threats from North Korea, despite objections from Beijing, which considers the installation a threat to its own security.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and War Secretary Jim Mattis have been pushing a diplomatic strategy to convince North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to come to the table and negotiate away his nuclear weapons.

But other senior figures in the Trump Administration have reportedly endorsed the idea of a "bloody nose" strike to damage Kim's nuclear sector and show the US means business, hopefully without provoking a wider war.
