Washington intends to deploy medium-range missiles in the Asian region

51
The United States is discussing with its allies and partners the possibility of deploying medium-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region, but states should decide on their deployment on their territories independently. This was stated by Deputy Head of the US State Department for Arms Control and International Security Andrea Thompson, writes the Associated Press.


Washington intends to deploy medium-range missiles in the Asian region


According to Ms. Thompson, the US allies "reacted positively" to the country's exit from the INF Treaty and now must independently decide whether they will deploy American missiles on their territory. Washington does not exert any pressure on them.

To make a decision in this regard is the sovereign right of the leaders of these states. Any decision regarding this region will be made in consultation with our allies; this is not a unilateral decision by the United States.

- said Thompson.

She also said that Washington is hoping for a new arms control treaty, which, along with Russia, should be signed by China.

Earlier in the United States, they stated that they did not exclude the deployment of medium-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region after the United States withdrew from the INF Treaty. The likely locations for deployment are South Korea and Australia. Currently, representatives of the State Department have already visited New Zealand and Australia, where they held talks, including on the deployment of medium-range missiles in their territories.

      Well, such a very strange move. From Australia and NZ, they will only be threatened by the southeastern regions of China at extreme distances. This is practically the same as intercontinental missiles. Such a decision will not have any particular advantages over conventional ICBMs. Unless it disperses missiles from the United States and ties the allies. Another thing is if this is only the first step, and then something else will follow.

        To place a small number of them (for the southeastern regions to have enough) - it makes sense.
        So missiles placed in other places will not have to be aimed at them yet.

    After the United States makes an offer that cannot be refused. The classic scheme of American gangsters 20-30 years. It's just not clear why medium-range missiles in Australia? In my opinion, they won't even reach China. But the Americans probably know better if only Australia and Austria were not confused with "exceptional literacy", as was the case with some presidents.

    Yes, and we have a "package". These missiles will also be directed against us. The Americans have a powerful foothold in Asia from Japan and Korea. The shortest route from their fleet and air force. Asian "NATO" has long been on the doorstep. And this "NATO" lies entirely under the states. And the missiles will be placed in Europe. Just like missile defense and tank units. We have an enemy near Pskov. And in Kiev there is a wild field. We haven't been in such a zugzwang for a long time ... The Americans almost got on our heads.

      Yes, in principle, we do not need it anymore .. We get it from anywhere in the world, if that.! Purely to scare)))))) But NATO members do not scare us with missiles, but with a ring of hostile regimes .. This is a real threat for Russia! "Ring of Fire Anaconda" ..

    It will not reach Lisbon at all, and it will not reach Los Angeles at its very limit, in almost 21 minutes. But Chukotka was never considered for the deployment of Pioneers. Although the Politburo and some of the Ministry of Defense would like this.
