China Annoyed as US, Japan, S. Korea Start Missile-Tracking Drill

The US, Japan and South Korea kicked off a two-day missile-tracking exercise on Monday as China warned that such military assertions in the volatile Korean peninsula would not help in reducing the ongoing tensions.
The trilateral drill comes days after North Korea launched its latest long-range missile, which was claimed to be the country’s most sophisticated till date. Invariably, the event is bound to infuriate the hermit kingdom, which often pours scorn on such activities of the US military in the region, International Business Times reported.
“During the drill, Aegis warships from each country will simulate detecting and tracking down potential ballistic missiles from the North and sharing information,” the South Korean Defense Ministry said. This is the sixth such missile-tracking exercise taking place since June 2016.
However, China is not happy with the situation. Beijing has urged the US to scale down its military activities so as to not provoke North Korea.
“The situation is in a vicious cycle of provocation and confrontation. This is not conducive to regional peace and stability,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang. “If such a vicious cycle continues and leads to a very bad result, it serves no party’s interest.”
