Taiwan plans to test-fire a missile in September that has the capability to reach China’s southern coastal provinces, the Taiwanese online newspaper ET Today said, citing unidentified military sources.

The missile was developed by Taiwan’s Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology, the report said.
