China Tests New Ballistic Missile

  •  China successfully tested its latest submarine-launched ballistic missile, the JL-3,.
  • Asked about reports of a shining unidentified flying object in the sky cited in many provinces and whether he can confirm it was related to test launch of JL-3 submarine-launched ballistic missile, Defence Ministry spokesperson Ren Guoqiang said that it is normal for China to conduct scientific research and tests according to the plan.
  • According to Ren Guoqiang, these tests are not targeted against any country or specific entity.
  • China follows a defence policy which is defensive in nature and an active defence military strategy.
  • As per military experts, the JL-3 is China's latest SLBM under development that is expected to reach targets farther away with higher accuracy and capable of carrying more warheads than China's current SLBMs.
