Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow is helping China build a system warning about ballistic missile launches.

Since the Cold War times, only the United States and Russia have had such systems, which involve an array of ground-based radars and space satellites.

The system is essential for early spotting of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

He added that “this is a very serious thing that will radically enhance China’s defence capability.” His statement signalled a new level of defence cooperation between the two former Communist rivals, which have developed increasingly close political and military ties.
