U.S. Rep Alleges China Helping North With ICBMs

Posted: Apr 19, 2012


WASHINGTON - A U.S. lawmaker has formally requested the Obama administration examine reports of possible missile cooperation between North Korea and China, a congressional source said Wednesday.

In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Representative Mike Turner, Republican of Ohio, said the U.S. should do something if the allegations are found true, added the source.

He cited some experts’ analysis of a transporter-erector-launcher that carried what is believed to be the North’s new long-range missile in a recent military parade in Pyongyang. They said the 16-wheel vehicle is based on a design from a Chinese agency.

There has been no formal confirmation that what was on display was a real intercontinental ballistic missile and that China and North Korea worked together to develop such a weapon.

“Of deeper concern, however, are allegations that the missile, unveiled at the recent military parade in Pyongyang, is based on Chinese technology, in violation of international obligations and a threat to the national security interest of the United States,” Turner was quoted as saying in the letter.
