Beijing slams Australia’s β€˜destabilizing’ actions as it partners with US to develop air-launched hypersonic missile

China has urged Australia to do more to bring stability to the Asia-Pacific region, expressing concern over Canberra’s attachment to Washington and its use of the β€œChina threat theory” as an excuse to develop hypersonic missiles.

Speaking on Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told the gathered press that Beijing was concerned by Canberra’s destabilizing impact on regional security. 

Hua was responding to questions about a new US-Australian partnership to develop and test air-launched hypersonic cruise missiles. The two allies announced the accord under the bilateral Southern Cross Integrated Flight Research Experiment program, or SCIFiRE, on Monday.Β
