State Department: European allies object to reducing missile defense because of the threat from North Korea

US allies in NATO are not going to agree to reduce the European missile defense system because of the arms build-up in North Korea, which today poses a real threat, reports RIA News statement by Assistant Secretary of State Frank Rose.


State Department: European allies object to reducing missile defense because of the threat from North Korea


Earlier, Russia has repeatedly pointed to an increase in NATO military activity and the deployment of a missile defense system in Europe.

“We are not going to agree to the limitation of our systems (ABM), because we need flexibility to cope with the rapid and growing threat,” said Rose during a speech in Brussels. "The DPRK has a large number of ballistic missiles, and they constantly test with them."

Recall 6 January DPRK announced the testing of hydrogen weapons. At the same time, Pyongyang stated that "the tests were not intended to threaten or provoke any countries, but became necessary due to the hostile US policy towards the DPRK."

        Give your hat and coat! Your name day is bad.
        They did not look for it, applied it.
        It’s for them that Iran should be reinforced, and that Korea would only have to transfer arrows to Russia.
        It’s time to use ice axes against old men, financial sharks. They survived from the mind.
        Countries, states, civilizations, religion, peoples, people, they are all on the drum. Their own moshna does not bother. But in spite of stir up, that is not malicious, just right.

      All for a turn. This Washington showed the Europeans a geographic atlas created at the psaki printing house. Where DPRK is located on the Kursk.

        North Korea has a large number of ballistic missiles, and they constantly conduct tests with them

        The distance from the DPRK to Europe and from the DPRK to America is not far. Of course, ballistic missiles can fly far.

    And the trajectories of Korean missiles will not pass over China? So it is necessary to put missile defense in China, and not on the border in Europe.
    The Europeans, probably, do not know that at the final part of the trajectory the warheads are put "to detonate" in case of any damage. And if the warhead is of a megaton class, then Europe will hardly care whether it hit where it was aimed or not.

    And for some reason, I thought about some kind of synchronization in nuclear missile matters. Iran ceased to be a threat, the DPRK immediately signed to be such a threat, but don’t feed bread to the geyrop; The desired card in the sleeve and on time. It looks like there are agents of influence in the DPRK.

    ... because of the threat of the DPRK, but rather, UFOs with vampires will attack even in a dream.
    Veiled excuses, but we know that the goal is Russia.
    In order to inflict damage on her, which cannot be fixed, and then she managed to defend herself from the remnants of Russian missiles.
    An empty undertaking, everyone will get it, they forgot our rage when there is nothing to lose!

    The Consulate General of Russia in Antalya confirmed the information about the police detaining three Russians on suspicion of involvement in the terrorist attack in Istanbul, which occurred on January 12 and claimed the lives of 10 people.

    I am curious where are these notorious DPRK missiles that can reach Europe. And even when they appear, they will have to fly over the territory of Russia or China (who will let them through). And, apparently, they are afraid that Koreans will take advantage of energetically unfavorable trajectories through the South Pole! laughing

    The State Department, as usual, is hypocritically lying. When necessary, all evil comes from Russia. When to cut off legal Russia's claims - no, it's not you, it's Koreans! Is there at least one person (not a patient of the dispensary) who believes in this?

    Missile unit in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
    The commander gathers officers in the conference room and says in a very serious voice:
    - Comrades, we received an order to reduce staff by 10%.
