China has successfully tested its advanced air defence capabilities, intercepting a missile in mid-flight within its territory, state media reported.

“The test has achieved the expected objective,” the official Xinhua news agency quoted the foreign ministry as saying on Tuesday.

The report on the “ground-based mid-course missile interception technology” comes amid tensions over US arms sales to Taiwan.

Last week the US cleared a sale of advanced Patriot air defence missiles to Taiwan despite opposition from Beijing, a move which could chill ties at a time when China and the US are also wary about trade disputes and economic strains.
