Beijing has tested a new missile close to the Korean peninsula amid heightened tensions in the region, after North Korea, South Korea, and the US recently conducted military drills in the area, RT reports.
The Chinese military carried out the test in the busy northeastern Bohai Sea close to the Korean peninsula “in recent days,” Chinese Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday, citing a statement from China’s Defense Ministry.
The operation was designed to “enhance the combat skills of the forces” to safeguard national security, the brief statement said.
“The test achieved the expected result,” it added, without disclosing the exact date of the launch or any further details.
