Chinese hypersonic missile launch is very concerning - US Army chief, Mark Milley says after America fails its own missile test



Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Milley has expressed his concerns over China's suspected hypersonic missile test, calling it a 'Sputnik moment', referring to the Soviet satellite launch that sparked the Cold War arms race.


The Financial Times reported this month that China carried out a hypersonic missile test, which stunned the US military.



Reports indicate that it was a nuclear-capable missile that could evade US air defence systems. Beijing denies any missile test, saying instead it was a spacecraft. And just last week the US failed in its own hypersonic missile test.



In an interview with Bloomberg News, Milley says that the Chinese military is "expanding rapidly".
