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
The comments came days after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty sig
ned with the Soviet Union in 1987, which banned land-based missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. 阿拉爱上海
Following the withdrawal, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said over the weekend
that he wanted to deploy midrange conventional missiles in the Asia-Pacific within months.
阿拉爱上海Hua warned that international and region
al security will be severely undermined if the US insists on the deployment.
“For a long time, the US has been grossly interfering in the affairs of regional countries in the Asia-Pacific,” she said.
“Politically, it has tried to drive a wedge between them by promoting a so-ca 阿拉爱上海女神会所
lled Indo-Pacific strategy. It has adopted a selfish, beggar-thy-neighbor approach in econo
mic affairs while making military deployment and strengthening military allies in the region.”
阿拉爱上海The US has been shifting blame by using China as an excuse on issues including the INF
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.

Hu Yibing’s father Hu Zhiqiang, who works in a shoe factory in Wenzhou, Zhejiang

“I didn’t know how many sixth graders would come to the tent classroom as some of them were injured in the eart
hquake and some of their homes were damaged. But most of them came,” said Guo Gang, the deputy headmaster.阿拉爱上海
The supporting housing of the new Fengtai station will also reach 357,000 square meters, Li said.
“A set of high-standard surrounding facilities will be built for the new railway station to incre 阿拉爱上海
ase the overall passenger capacity,” he said, adding that the supporting services for the rou
阿拉爱上海女神会所nd-trip railway line, a carriage maintenance station as well as a bullet train repair site will start construction soon.
Trains on the Beijing-Guangzhou line and Beijing-Shanghai rail line, two major routes th
rough the capital’s Fengtai district, had been diverted to create space for construction, said Li. 阿拉爱上海
The new station will also make it more convenient for passengers in southern Beijin
阿拉爱上海女神会所g to take trains directly from Fengtai to Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou and Wuhan.
The Fengtai station is being relocated 1.4 kilometers northeast of its original loca
tion to an area between the west Third Ring and Fourth Ring roads in Beijing. 阿拉爱上海

yer structure combining conventional train and bullet train routes, the construction company said. 阿拉爱上海

ne 2010, the station ceased passenger services, with trains just passing through.
