    The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Monday said the Financial Times-reported “China's test of new space capability with a hypersonic missile in August” was in fact a routine test of technology for reusing a space vehicle, and Chinese experts said that China has the right to test such technology for peaceful purpose regardless of how the US or the West demonizes it.
