The deployment of the US anti-missile defense system in Europe, and now in Asian countries, directly at the borders of the Russian Federation and the PRC, is a matter of concern, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after a meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Moscow on 24 November.
The head of the Russian diplomatic mission noted that there was concern in Russia in the light of the fact that South Korea and Japan are becoming territories in which elements of the American missile defense system appear, and the allegedly existing nuclear threat in the person of the DPRK is called a pretext for such actions.
«However, in fact, if you look at the map, you will see that this US missile defense system surrounds «miraculously» the Russian Federation and the PRC,» Lavrov said.
According to him, Americans are most likely to answer for these objects.
The diplomat stressed that the problem in this situation is not in Japan, but in American foreign policy.
