Russia is helping China to create a missile warning system, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a yearly session of the Valdai Discussion Club on Thursday, October 3, TASS reports.

“I don’t think I will reveal a big secret, this will become evident after all,” Putin said. “We are now helping our Chinese partners to create a missile warning system. This is a very serious thing, that will drastically enhance the defensive capacity of the People’s Republic of China. As currently, only the US and Russia have such systems,” he added.
