The American authorities have canceled and postponed the test of the Minuteman-III intercontinental ballistic missile to another date in order to avoid tensions with Russia in the nuclear sphere. This was reported by the press service of the US Air Force.

“These are the tests we postponed in March. <…> We just canceled it. This is a regular launch, so we will just wait for the next one, “a BBC spokesman told TASS.

In early March this year, the Pentagon also announced that the missile test was being postponed. While US Defense Department spokesman John Kirby explained that the United States wants to show that the authorities do not want to take part in any actions that could then be misinterpreted. The United States has thus decided to avoid tensions with Russia in the nuclear sphere. US Air Force spokeswoman Anne Stefanek told Reuters that the test was postponed for the same reasons as last time.

The Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile has a range of 12,000 km and is the only mine-based missile in the US Strategic Nuclear Forces. The canceled launch was to be the second this year, the first took place on February 23. As part of the tests, 3-4 launches are carried out annually, writes MK.
