China Deploys Missiles Near Russian Border

China has deployed top-notch Dongfeng-41 intercontinental ballistic missiles in the northeast Heilongjiang Province, which borders the Russian Far East.
The pictures of the missiles have been uploaded on websites in mainland China, TASS news agency reported.
Later Moscow said Kremlin does not regard China’s deployment of intercontinental ballistic missiles near the Russian border as a threat.
Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told the media, “We do not regard China’s efforts to develop its armed forces as a threat, and even if this information (about the deployment of intercontinental ballistic missiles near the Russian borders) is true, we see no risks for our country.”
Peskov added that “China is our strategic ally and our partner in political, trading and economic terms”.
Earlier, the daily Global Times said China had deployed its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles DF-41 in Heilongjiang Province bordering Russia.
The daily said images of China’s newest weapon system were made public in the Chinese segment of the Internet on Monday. Some media speculated the publication of the photos might have been timed for the inauguration of US President Donald Trump.
According to the Global Times, Dongfeng-41 is a nuclear solid-fuel road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile. With a range of 14,000 kilometers and a payload of 10-12 nuclear warheads, it can target anywhere in the world and is widely considered one of the most advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles,.
