U.S. lawmakers introduced a bipartisan bill aimed at improving the capabilities of U.S. missile defense, writes ZeroHedge.

Democrat Senator Brian Schatz from Hawaii and Republican Senator Dan Sullivan from Alaska introduced a bill on may 24 about the integrated missile defense S. 2980, which, after two readings was submitted to the U.S. Senate Committee on armed services.

The bill requires new efforts to accelerate further the improvement of the protection of hypersonic missiles and the development of space sensors.

The senators referred to a number of high-ranking military officials, who warn that China and Russia are developing new technologies, including hypersonic missiles, which can radically change the situation in the military sphere.

“Last year, Congress, working closely with the administration of US President Donald trump has made much-needed efforts to dramatically strengthen and promote the missile defense of our country,” said Senator Sullivan.

“This year, while continuing to work in a bipartisan mode, our bill will allow for complete development and deployment of space sensors. This important measure helps us to prepare our missile defense system and make them more interoperable and effective against the constantly evolving missile threats,” he said.

“In addition, this bill aims at better coordination of our missile defense with a National defense strategy 2018, including more rapid deployment of advanced features to eliminate future threats better integration of our missile defense systems and greater cooperation with allies and partners in the field of technology of missile defense,” – said Senator Sullivan.

“As for North Korea, we can hope for the best, but prepare for the worst,” said Senator Schatz.

“I strongly support diplomacy, but at the same time, the bill strengthens our missile defense system and protects Hawaii, Alaska and the US mainland from missile threats,” added Schatz.

As reported “Vesti.Economy,” the President of the United States after returning from the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN stated that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat and is not the “biggest and most dangerous problem for the United States.”

A historic meeting between the US President and the leader of the DPRK took place on June 12 in Singapore. Trump promised after the summit that the denuclearization of North Korea will start “very soon”.

Senators Schatz and Sullivan said that the Minister of defence of the USA “will present the congressional committees for defense of the report” with a detailed description of how the Ministry plans to accelerate its program to protect against hypersonic missiles over the next three months.
