Structures that are erected on artificial Islands, are likely to rocket mines.
China finishes construction of nearly two dozen buildings on artificial Islands in the South China sea that can be designed to accommodate missiles surface-to-air long range.
According to them, the construction of concrete structures with retractable roofs on a chain of artificial Islands in the Spratly, it is possible to consider military escalation in the region.
“It’s not like the Chinese were building something in the South China sea just to build it, and these structures resemble sheds for missile launchers, so the logical conclusion is that they are,” said an official from the US intelligence.
According to another official, the length of buildings 20 metres and a height of 10 meters.
In Beijing, the representative of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of China Geng Shuang said on 22 January that he did not know about this information and did not disclose whether China planned to place missiles on the Islands.
“China conducts normal normal construction works on its territory, including the deployment is necessary and appropriate protective territorial objects that is the normal law in accordance with international law for sovereign States,” he told reporters.
Since 2013, China began large-scale construction of artificial Islands in the waters of the South China sea that could provide him with control over the region. The US accused China of deliberate militarization of the region.
