China warns about US plans to deploy missiles in Asia-Pacific region

Beijing, Apr 25 (Prensa Latina) The Chinese Defense Ministry warned on Thursday that deploying US missiles in the Asia-Pacific region will seriously threaten national security, and Beijing will take resolute countermeasures.

Wu Qian, director of the Information Office at the Chinese Defense Ministry and a spokesperson for that military institution, stated at a press briefing that Washington’s actions undermine regional peace and stability seriously.

We expect that the relevant countries will refrain from opening the door to the devil, which will only end up hurting everyone, including itself, the spokesperson stressed.

Earlier, the US Army in the Pacific noted on its official website that the First Multi-Domain Task Force (MDTF) had deployed mid-range missiles in northern Luzon, the Philippines, for the first time.

The situation comes amid a three-day official visit to China by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
