On Tuesday, the Chinese Defense Ministry reported that the country has successfully conducted another round of its anti-missile intercept system tests as part of its efforts to bolster their defensive capabilities.

This is not the first time China has been conducted missile research and tests as it is a part of President Xi Jinping's military modernization scheme.

China has also conducted similar exercises with Russia and opposed the US deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea. China fears the possibility that the THAAD system may look into Chinese territory due to its radar and it may also strained the already delicate situation in the Korean peninsula.

In its statement, the Defense Ministry said "the ground-based midcourse anti-missile intercept technology" was tested within China's borders on Monday and achieved its expected results. No further details were added in the statement.

No details have been given when it comes to the Chinese missile program, but the Defense Ministry does do brief statements from time to time. According to the state media, the country has been doing these anti-missile system tests since 2010 as part of its national defense and security program.
