The Ministry of foreign Affairs of China denied widespread media information about accommodation in the North-East of China near the border with Russia Intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) DF-41 («Dongfeng-41»). Press reports on this subject in the Chinese depodesta called «speculation of Internet users».
Chinese armed forces in recent times are not placed in the North-East of PRC missiles «Dongfeng-41», said press Secretary of the foreign Ministry of China Hua Chunying at a press briefing on Wednesday, January 25. «This is just speculation of Internet users, speculation that is untrue», — the diplomat said, answering a question rossyskogo TASS.
Russian authorities said yesterday that the deployment of missiles in China is not a threat to Russian security. In particular, this view was expressed by the Kremlin. «Any action in terms of the development of the Chinese armed forces, if this information is true, then, at least military construction in China is not perceived as a threat to our country», — said the press Secretary of the Russian President , Dmitry Peskov.
In the state Duma concluded that the location of China’s strategic missiles near the border with Russia indicates a high degree of trust between the two countries, reported «Interfax». «The fact that they are placed at a maximum distance from possible areas of interception, including mobile missile systems placed on vessels of the United States, suggests that the Russian policy towards China has formed a high level of trust,» said Chairman of the Duma Commission for the development of enterprises of the military-industrial complex, President of the Association «League of assistance to defense enterprises» Vladimir Gutenev.
In the Federation Council of the Russian Federation considered that it is rather a signal for the United States and Russia have nothing to fear. «Given the current state of Russian-Chinese relations there is no reason to believe that missiles can be aimed at us. Especially that refers to the missiles, so to speak, long-range,» — said the first Deputy head of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Franz Klintsevich.
«I think we are talking about preventive measure, caused by the recent utterances of Donald trump. Apparently, in China fear that U.S. policy towards China could change. It is a kind of signal,» explained the Senator.
In turn, the Deputy Director of the Institute of political and military analysis Alexander Khramchikhin said in an article on the website of «Nezavisimaya Gazeta» that are placed in the Heilongjiang province of missiles «Dongfeng-41» Russia will be unaffected in the dead zone, which for an ICBM is up to two thousand kilometers.
«Shooting in Russia, with which China has a common border, ICBM just redundant. Here we need missiles of «intermediate range» (500-5500 kilometers) that the USSR and the USA eliminated under the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and short range from 1987. For all other countries, including China, this Treaty does not apply», — the expert explains.
At the same time, according to Khramchikhin, to get to the United States, China needs to place Intercontinental ballistic missiles, as North, «which he does». The fact that «rocket fly around the map and on the globe, where the shortest path is an arc of a great circle (the great circle passes through the points of start and finish of the rocket and the center of the Earth),» explains the expert. How China and Russia, this is the quickest way in the United States passes through the Arctic, but China is thus located generally to the South of the Russian Federation.
Earlier in mass media appeared information about the fact that China is increasing its strategic weapons on the territory of North-Eastern Heilongjiang province, near the border with Russia.
