US halts ICBM ‘Minuteman III’ test
The United States has postponed a long-planned intercontinental ballistic missile test following China’s anger over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, a senior official said. This week’s decision to postpone a test flight of the unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile comes after China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) began military exercises around Taiwan in response to Pelosi’s visit to Taipei. China claims Taiwan as its own country and vows to integrate it into the Chinese mainland. The Minuteman III ICBM test scheduled for this week has been rescheduled, John Kirby, the National Security Council’s strategic communications coordinator, said Thursday.
