Beijing (XNA) Oct 29, 2012
Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun has dismissed media reports about a planned test launch of an anti-satellite missile in November.
"Such reports did not conform to the fact," Yang said at a regular news briefing on Thursday.
Reports said that China will conduct the test targeting satellites with a high orbit altitude, such as reconnaissance satellites and navigation satellites.
Reports said the test would be conducted after the U.S. presidential election next month.
