BEIJING, April 21 (ChinaMil) -- "It is normal for China to execute scientific experiments within its territory, and these experiments are not aimed at any specific country nor target," according to the Information Affairs Bureau of the Ministry of National Defense (MND) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) on April 21, 2016.

It was reported that China test-fired a type of intercontinental missile near the South China Sea on April 12. "It is normal for China to execute scientific experiments within its territory, and these experiments are not aimed at any specific country nor target," the MND claimed on April 21 when responding to the media.

"The so-called test location reported by the media is pure conjecture," the MND stressed.
