US general: Russia and China working on new weapons to challenge the US

Russia and China are creating anti-satellite weapons to reduce the United States’ capabilities and to shift the balance of power in the world, said the Head of the US Strategic Command, General John E. Hyten, Interfax reports.

"They have been building weapons, testing space weapons that can be controlled from Earth, electronic warfare weapons, laser weapons… and they make no secret of it," noted Hyten and added that in doing so, Moscow and Beijing defy the United States and its allies, intending to change the balance of power in the world.

The United States cannot allow this to happen, Hyten stressed.
