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

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

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

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.
