China today said it has tested a new guided missile in the Bohai Sea near the Korean peninsula to raise the operational capability of its armed forces and “effectively respond to threats” to national security.

In a brief statement, the Chinese defence ministry did not specify when the missile was tested.

The tests of new missiles and weapons were carried out by the People’s Liberation Army’s Rocket Force in recent days and were designed to “raise operational capability” of the armed forces to “effectively respond to threats” to national security, the statement said.

    Bohai Sea is an inland gulf surrounded by China on all sides. It has nothing to do with Korea. Inland gulfs tend to get selected instead of open ocean for land to sea missile testing for obvious reasons. s: en.wikipedia /wiki/Bohai_Sea#/media/File:Bohaiseamap2.png
