UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia is helping China develop an early warning system against a missile attack.
“I will not reveal a big secret, and this will be revealed anyway. We are helping Chinese partners develop an early warning system of a missile attack,” Putin told a session of the Valdai Forum in Sochi on Thursday.
“This is serious, which will fundamentally strengthen China’s defense capabilities. Now such a system exists only in the United States and Russia,” Putin said.
“It is impossible to deter China, and if anyone tries to do so, he will realize that this is impossible, and will harm himself by those attempts,” he said.
He pointed out that Russia and China are cooperating in many fields, from agriculture to space.
Putin stressed that the friendship between Russia and China “is not directed against any party. We are always working positively for each other’s interests.”
