Beijing requires Korea to abandon the deployment of the US anti-missile system

39
The Chinese government has demanded that Seoul abandon its intention to deploy the THAAD complexes on the Korean Peninsula, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




The United States and South Korea have long been carrying out plans to deploy THAAD anti-missile systems on the peninsula. However, faced with a sharply negative attitude to this idea from China and Russia, Seoul hesitated for a long time.

The final decision of the Republic of Kazakhstan was made after the next nuclear and missile tests in the DPRK. Seoul and Washington announced the start of specific negotiations on this issue, promising to agree on all the details of the supply of missile defense elements to the peninsula in a short time. At the same time it was reported that places for the placement of complexes were already selected.

As a result, China began to use tactics of diplomatic pressure.

"We express the hope that the countries concerned will abandon their plans to deploy US missile defense elements ... The deployment of THAAD complexes on the Korean Peninsula will not help reduce tensions, nor will peace and stability in the region ... We are totally against the emergence of THAAD in Korea, as this is serious infringes on our security interests, ”the PRC Foreign Ministry said yesterday.

In the Chinese media sound even tougher statements. Some of them called for “to respond with harsh military measures,” and even “to start preparing for war.”

“It seems that in Seoul, for some reason, they began to think that President Park, after attending the September 3 parade, received a blank check, including something that we absolutely do not like. What, they say, we will forgive everything for her visit. This is absolutely not true. We cannot accept missile defense systems and are ready to respond accordingly, ”the Chinese expert told the newspaper on condition of anonymity.

According to him, "Beijing is likely to respond in two directions - military and commercial."

“We are obliged to show Seoul that their step with THAAD is already beyond our patience, and South Korea will feel the negative consequences in various fields,” the expert added.

Seoul, in turn, said that the missile defense system "will not be directed against China and Russia, but will be used exclusively to neutralize the missile threat of the North."

      Here it is, the growth of tension! Creating deep contradictions due to Eun’s obstinacy ... The Americans, this is all that is needed! For sure, it’s a sinful thing to think that the head of North Korea is an agent of US influence in the region ..., all the same, he studied in Switzerland, everything could happen! And they could recruit - it’s not a tricky thing!

        If there weren’t a S. Korean nuclear and missile program, the Yankees would have found another reason to place their missions in South Korea. It was only a matter of time. First of all, THAAD is directed against China and Russia, so that the South Koreans do not squeak there.
        And judging by the fact that the Yankees continue to deploy their pro in Europe, even after Iran ceased its nuclear program, The United States wanted to spit on all sorts of occasions! Now they are deploying their troops, insolently, where they want to deploy, and they are deploying there, and no one has given them a decree.
        And it seems like the Chinese think the same way ... request

          Definitely! But there in the Far East - primarily against China

          If Russia fights off in the west and in Syria - then China must strain and keep a front on the Far East itself - the opponents have been understood for a long time and by everyone - the United States with Japan and the South Caucasus.

      I doubt that they will want to do this. China, although angry, but will not hit, is friends with the head. But from the DPRK with missiles and nuclear weapons, anything can be expected, so it is better to have systems that protect against these missiles.

        The annual turnover of the South Caucasus-China is something in the region of 300 lard, and this is not halam-balam ... Without the Chinese market, the economy of the South Caucasus, to put it mildly, will be difficult.

    US missile defense is not able to withstand ballistic missiles North. Korea and Iran are not my conclusions, this is from the report to the US Congress from today. All of their missile defense was originally developed not for defense, but for attack. According to the test results, only 50% of ballistic missiles can be intercepted in the passive phase of the flight. (Life News looked)

    Here the fact of providing places for the deployment of missile defense is important.
    After the apartment is conquered, who knows what furniture to put there.
    Military territory, entrance exit by passes.
    What kind of rockets will be there, except from space to consider.
    Local Indians will figure it out. Yes, and who will tell them what? Not funny?
    The Chinese can clearly be understood.
    That something like this.

    Damn, the current climate does something on the thinking abilities of people, I mean, it will burn out for northerners with a "vigorous rocket" it's still a question, but I think Ng has no particular desire to shit at his side, but after placing the American missile defense, South Koreans are suicide bombers 200%, 100% from us and 100% from the Chinese, so I want to understand what the South Koreans think, all the same, probably what they sit on, what they eat.

    Here's the thing: protection from supposedly North Korean missiles is nothing more than an excuse. And even Eun has nothing to do with it. If there weren’t him and his nuclear tests and rockets with a satellite, the Americans would have come up with something else. It is a fact.
    As for the thesis of some that Un supposedly an American agent once played into the hands of the Americans, this is nothing more than nonsense .. All the big powers such as the USA, China, Russia / the USSR always assumed that small countries should, if not completely, to a certain extent obey them, or at least be dependent on them in foreign policy, and even better in the economy. It has always been, it is, and it will be so. The United States so picks up allies and Russia / USSR the same. But North Korea in e
    In this respect, the country is special. Its leadership from the very beginning of its existence, though not completely but to a large extent economically dependent on the USSR / and China, has always tried to be completely independent of anyone in foreign policy. because of this, this country had serious problems in relations with the allies of China and the USSR / Russia. suffice it to say that during the USSR, the DPRK was not a member of the military bloc of the socialist countries, the Warsaw Treaty organization and the organization of the countries of the CMEA member countries. The same thing is now. Eun acts strictly in accordance with the traditions of his country's foreign policy in the same way as his grandfather and father .. Given only and exclusively the interests of his country and not taking into account anyone else since the same China and Russia do not take into account his interests ie his country. So in this sense it is very logical and absolutely sane and adequate, although they are trying to make it look like it is inadequate.
    As for these missile defense systems, they already wrote here that the US Congress admitted that they would not be able to protect the United States from North Korean missiles. How will China respond? I don’t know, and I don’t want to guess. Wait and see. There is a suspicion that nothing but public discontent.

    If deployed, it is necessary to raise the question of the existence of a missile defense system in Europe, Iran has abandoned its nuclear program, North Korean missiles now have missile defense points close to the DPRK's side. While they will be discouraged to deploy "calibers" near Vladivostok. wink

    It makes no sense for the North Koreans to shoot at Russia, they are very friendly towards Russia .. They have missiles and nuclear weapons intended for the "main enemy" - America ..

    https://lenta.ru/news/2016/02/18/no_we_cannot/
    The US Congress recognized that the US missile defense system cannot protect the country from Iranian and North Korean missiles ..

    In my opinion, China should not use economic or military actions against Koreans. To be friends further. Against the United States to impose sanctions does not work out painlessly. Syria and Iraq can force them to show and respect themselves by supporting the legitimate actions of Russia. You need to talk with the United States, and not respond to those who are set against. Koreans do not attack China and are interested in their security under the patronage of the United States. To negotiate with the United States you need to have something to exchange. The Russian Federation does something like this in Syria and I don’t think it should be against China’s participation? Perhaps it may not even get to real things if China declares as the Saudis that they are ready to send their troops to Syria to fight terrorists.

    export-oriented is dependent on everyone.
    So the only thing he can do is
    to rivet even more different missiles.

    Here .. !!! But for some reason, some countries, including those from among the major world powers, ignore this and pass other international resolutions that directly contradict these treaties ..
    In my opinion, China should not use economic or military actions against Koreans. Make friends

    In China, they understand this .. The truth is not entirely .. There are also manifestations there already in the USA and in Russia, I would call it great-power chauvinism ..
