    China carries out anti-missile test

    Chinese military performed a 'land-based mid-course missile interception test within its territory', according to Xinhua

    China tested emerging military technology aimed at destroying missiles in mid-air after an initial test in 2010, state media said, in a move that will unnerve its neighbours.

    A brief report by the official Xinhua news agency said the military carried out a "land-based mid-course missile interception test within its territory".

    "The test has reached the pre-set goal," the report quoted an unnamed defence ministry official as saying. "The test is defensive in nature and targets no other country."

    It did not specify whether any missile or object had been destroyed in the test.

    "Although no other detailed information about the test was released from the military authorities, weapon system experts said such a test could build shield for China's air defences by intercepting incoming warheads such as ballistic missiles in space," the report added.

    People's Liberation Army officials and documents in recent years have said developing anti-missile technology is one focus of defence spending, which has grown by double-digits over many years.

    The latest flexing of China's maturing military hardware comes as Beijing is involved in increasingly bitter territorial disputes in the East China Sea with Japan and in the South China Sea with several southeast Asian nations.

    Beijing says its military spending is for defensive purposes and the modernisation of outdated forces.

    ******************************

    One more landmark towards China's Peaceful Rise programme.

    This was essential for China since it is basing an offensive missile matrix to combat US naval superiority in the Pacific which is a stumbling block to Chinese plans in the South China Sea and where confrontation may occur.

    In case of confrontation there can be a missile exchange. This anti missile missile will be a great boon for the protection of Mainland China.

    How is that relevant?

    Where does India come into the picture?

    If China is said to be scared of Agni, then it is a China India issue and nothing to do with the US.

    Could you elaborate lest I have missed something.

    Right now, bareboned, it appears that your flag does not hide where you interest lies.

    And you have got hot behind your collar with that remark of arnabmit.

    Surely, you should go there where you interest lies!

    Pragmatically, just to inform you, the world is afraid of the US and its weaponry.

    Given the geostrategic scenario, China has taken a step that protects her interest.

    From a military point of view, the action is in the right direction!

    1 you missed something yourself have said.....This was essential for China since it is basing an offensive missile matrix to combat US naval superiority in the Pacific which is a stumbling block to Chinese plans in the South China Sea and where confrontation may occur.

    2 if you have to doubt the relevance you should 1st ask for the indian member how indian missile suits the debate because the original article says 'East China Sea with Japan and in the South China Sea with several southeast Asian nations.'......and then you said something about the US.........so why would any one talk about india??? if the issue is china-us or china-japan.......???
