US concerned about potential uses of hypersonic missiles, says envoy

GENEVA, Oct 18 — The United States is concerned about hypersonic missile technology and its potential military applications by China and Russia, a senior US arms control official said today.

“We have concerns about what China is doing on hypersonic,” US disarmament ambassador Robert Wood told reporters in Geneva after a report that Beijing had tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile.

“We just don’t know how we can defend against that type of technology, neither does China or Russia,” he said, referring to the difficulty of missile defence systems to track such high-speed weapons that can manoeuvre and evade their shields. China said earlier today it was a space vehicle, not a missile. — Reuters
