(Associated Press, By Lolita Baldor) US Defense Secretary Mark Esper has stated that he wants to deploy intermediate-range missiles in the Pacific in the coming months. The comment comes after the U.S.-Russia Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which banned the use and deployment of intermediate-range ballistic missiles, expired this Friday. Esper downplayed any potential backlash from China that such a deployment in the region would generate. <Accessed 2019-08-04>
