"Our future cruise missiles will have a very high level of artificial intelligence and automation. They will allow commanders to control them in a real-time manner, or to use a fire-and-forget mode, or even to add more tasks to in-flight missiles," Wang told the China Daily newspaper in an interview.

He added that China was a global leader in the artificial intelligence field.

In March, China announces 7.6 percent defense budget rise, lowest in six years, reaching $146 billion.
