The United States is ready to escalate tensions in the immediate vicinity of China by deploying medium-range missiles and even supersonic weapons there.
This was announced by the Chief of Staff of the US Army, General James McConville, when asked whether he would support the deployment of ground-based medium-range missiles in the Indo-Pacific region, which were previously prohibited by the INF Treaty.
Recall that the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles ceased to exist on August 2, 2019 after the United States unilaterally found itself to comply with its terms.

“We are moving towards creating long-range delivery vehicles, such as hypersonic missiles, and we are developing medium-range weapons,” McConville said, noting that the country’s leadership will be presented with several options for means that can deny the enemy access to certain regions.
