Deputy Chief of Operations of the Joint Headquarters of the Central Military Council (CEA) Zhou Shanpin said that the deployment of the American THAAD missile defense system in South Korea undermines the strategic security interests of China and Russia, the Ministry of Defense of China informs.


Beijing: THAAD system in South Korea undermines Russia's security


This statement was made at the UN at a briefing by the Russian and Chinese military on the deployment of a global US missile defense system. Beijing urged Washington and Seoul to “take seriously the concerns of China and other countries in the region, abandon this erroneous decision and withdraw the appropriate equipment.”

In July, 2016, after five months of negotiations, the United States and South Korea decided to deploy the THAAD system, which should, if necessary, intercept North Korean ballistic missiles.

THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) is designed for high-altitude over-atmospheric interception of missiles, allegedly, of short and medium range. Its deployment worries China and Russia. Japan noted that the placement of THAAD will contribute to peace and stability in the region, RIA News

    But in Europe does not undermine our security interests? Or eastward movement of NATO infrastructure does not undermine our security interests? And the NATO ships in the Black Sea with the Aegis system should not worry us?

        Hello Pasha! hi
        Well, he is rather a companion companion. And now he has the same problem as we, the NATO movement towards its borders.
        And in this regard, I think, but the United States will not tear itself up, creating a base near our borders and dragging NATO infrastructure to the borders of China? The pukel will not crack, I apologize for this idiomatic expression?

            Don’t say it. When Russia is gouging the American fleet in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, Korean missiles can really intercept ours. So they threaten our security, yes.
            But the Chinese - no. Because through the Yellow Sea calmly covers the whole of Korea with so many missiles that no air defense can cope. So for them, these systems are only a target.

              And now the question is, Alexander: if it is because you predicted, is there any certainty that China will cover these targets? Or decides to wait?

                From that I say - these missiles are a danger to us, not to China
                And, as the English say, there are no regular friends in politics. How strong and long the union will be is up to us

          That is, to do what the United States is now doing in our regard and in relation to China? And how can one restrain the possessor of nuclear weapons, and even the most powerful economy in the world, with a country with practically unlimited human resources?

          Should not. The presence of nuclear weapons in the DPRK should not worry America, Japan, the South Caucasus, and many others. This is a "personal matter" of the DPRK. wink

      No one can forbid countries to choose which unions and associations they should join. They join NATO because they are afraid of us. This is just a medical fact. Why you are afraid and whether there are reasons for this - decide for yourself. As for the "strengthening of NATO", this poses no threat to Russia. The forces on our western borders are extremely insufficient to threaten our sovereignty. Even our lack of nuclear weapons would be dangerous only in terms of relations with China. The conflict with Russia is too expensive and too unrealistic. Now, when there will be at least a million soldiers with heavy weapons on our western borders, then this will be a real cause for concern. There is nothing like it today. Iraq took more than half a million, and Russia more by orders of magnitude. In this sense, the army of many thousands of China on our Far Eastern border should cause more concern, although now we are allies, it seems, but China has obvious problems with overpopulation. Over 10 years, their population has increased by 60 million people. Consider almost half the population of Russia, and our population in the Far East declined by 2 million over the same period. Now a little more than 6 million people live there. This should worry us much more. The West has no such problems, and therefore there is no need to capture us somehow, it will cost more. China is extremely unprofitable if Russia joins the West. This will be a defeat for China, since any claims to Siberia and the Far East will become impossible, and they will no longer have the rear represented by Russia in the confrontation with the rest of the world. China needs us until it has become too strong, then they will most likely try to completely crush us for themselves, because the West can no longer help us.

    The ring is slowly shrinking. From West to East .... The United States, both in quantitative terms and, in the future, in qualitative terms, will constantly strengthen its global missile defense. And when they are confident in their safety from a retaliatory missile strike from Russia (China will not climb in this case) .... then it will begin

      China will not climb in this case

      if nuclear kneading begins in Russia, then China will not be too good. Once in my youth I calculated for interest that if a 2MT warhead explodes in Siberia, then no more than 2 hours can be located in northern Kazakhstan without health risks .... so the Chinese have something to think about wink

    Japan noted that the deployment of THAAD will contribute to peace and stability in the region.

    Japanese atomic bombing did not go for the future. The United States will never ensure peace and stability in the region. Moreover, Japan and the Republic of Kazakhstan are cynically put under attack.

    Security is the wrong term: it's about risk levels. Security cannot be ensured, but risks need to be controlled and as soon as the risk becomes unacceptable, hostilities should begin.

    ...... statements about the expansion of borders in China are criminally punishable .. so for now the question of claims to Siberia, etc. it’s not necessary ..... and if it’s profitable for the Chinese to be “friends” with us, this is a trump card in our game in the Far East and in Asian regions ...
