The Chinese Ministry of National Defense on Wednesday responded to recent reports from some foreign media that China has tested supersonic missile weapons, saying it is "normal" and has "no specific targets."

Recent media reports said that China conducted its first flight test of a new supersonic missile weapon on January 9 in a bid to gain the ability to break through US missile defenses.

"It is normal to conduct scientific research tests within the Chinese territory according to the plan, and it does not target any specific countries or objectives," the Ministry of National Defense told the Global Times on Wednesday.
