China warned on Tuesday that the testing of a medium-range cruise missile by the US would start a new "arms race", after launching off the coast of California.

"This measure from the US will trigger a new round of an arms race, leading to an escalation of military confrontation, which will have a serious negative impact on the international and regional security situation," said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang.
