SYDNEY: US Defense Secretary Mark Esper has said that he was in favor of placing ground-launched, intermediate-range missiles in Asia.

Esper’s comments are likely to raise a concern about an arms race and could add to an already tense relationship with China, Reuters reported.

“Yeah, I would like to,” Esper said when asked whether he was considering placing such missiles in Asia.

“I would prefer the months … but these things tend to take longer than you expect,” he told reporters traveling with him to Sydney when asked about a timeline for when the missiles could be deployed.
