South Korean Foreign Ministry says that the deployment of elements of the US missile defense system on the Korean Peninsula is not a threat to Russia and China

41
Washington announced that it was preparing to deploy missile defense components on the territory of the Republic of Korea (South Korea) "in order to counter possible North Korean aggression." Recall that at the time of the initial talk about the deployment of US missile defense elements in Eastern Europe (Poland and Romania), Washington declared that it "counteracts the possible Iranian threat."


South Korean Foreign Ministry says that the deployment of elements of the US missile defense system on the Korean Peninsula is not a threat to Russia and China


In Moscow and Beijing responded to statements by representatives of the US military. In particular, Sergey Lavrov (Russian Foreign Minister) said that the deployment of US missile defense systems in South Korea would be a threat to Russia and China. In Beijing, they noted that "such placement is an excessive step."

The authorities of the Republic of Korea decided to “reassure” their colleagues from Russia and China. Information Agency TASS cites the statement of the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea:

The Government of the Republic of Korea is considering the possibility of deploying a missile defense system as part of a contingent of US forces in Korea as an exclusively defensive measure aimed at protecting the security of Korea and the Korean people.

The report says that Seoul and Washington are ready to take this step “due to the continuing development and testing of nuclear and missile weapons by Pyongyang.”

          But we can’t climb into the DPRK in any way. This will create an even bluer hotbed of tension. Kim Jong-un is not adequate, and the North Koreans will never allow strangers to him. Who they more or less trust is the Chinese. The times of Kim Il Sung are long gone.

          Where else they just didn’t want to put it - to Iran, and to Venezuela, and to Nicaragua, and to Cuba, and to Algeria, and even God knows where ... And is it all at our expense? It’s good to write off debts from debtors, stop robbing our people.

            Why are you suddenly so enraged?
            It is possible and necessary to deliver, even on the basis that these are orders for our defense industry.
            Here earlier, too, some screeched for the fact that every bomb in Syria was torn from the children of orphans and pensioners, however, as it turned out, with the cost of the Syrian operation of 600 million dollars, Russia received orders for 50 billion dollars.

              I agree with you, but there is a nuance))
              In order for the Iskanders deployed against the South Korean missile defense system to bring profit, they must be used - otherwise PR will not work .... America can afford to place missile defense systems (in economic terms) anywhere, since it prints money itself, and the rest of the countries (including Russia) support these candy wrappers from stagnation using them in mutual settlements. It's more difficult for us. For every ruble we print, we essentially pay a tribute to the Fed. America (as a country) also pays the FRS, but since the FRS is essentially a "management company" and depends on the US as a parasite depends on the carrier, the indirect profit (very large) also goes to America. The American administration has long been serving the interests of big business, primarily the military-industrial complex and oil workers, which, in turn, are somehow connected with the Fed. All American presidents come from influential clans - oil, weapons, drugs. Reagan and Obama are just exceptions to the rule. Obama, the result of improving crowd control technologies, proving the ability to put any inadequacy by the president and get the desired result (there was also Bush Jr., but he with a pedigree). Ordinary Americans pay for everything, of course I go overboard for everything, the whole world pays for everything, but Americans pay the same. The standard of living in America has dropped by an order of magnitude compared to the 80s, but the Fed's printing press allows you to level the actual decline in the economy and even spend on weapons more than the whole world put together. Let the hand that has deprived itself dry up)))) All expenditures on armaments end up in the pockets of corporations engaged in the production of weapons, they pay taxes and quite "legally" lobby for new wars, finance information campaigns and declare "crusades of crap." America has absolutely "legitimate" corruption, and if a private campaign is accused of actually giving a bribe to advance a law or a congressional decision, the accuser will be sued and easily jailed.
              I actually mean what the Americans raised a monster in the face of their military-industrial complex (the Fed is a separate but related topic). At the moment, the tail is wagging the dog, the tail is already larger than the dog and, by and large, is not going to reckon with the dog. In view of the fact that we have the same military-industrial complex for the most part represented by private campaigns, and the laws of capitalism are unchanged, will we not repeat the path of the United States? One can abstractly speculate that the Iskander manufacturer, in principle, is vitally interested in a situation where his products show themselves in all their glory ... Even an enterprise like the Votkinsk plant is a joint-stock company and therefore has shareholders interested not so much in the country's defense capability, how much is in profit (laws of capitalism). It's scary, from talking about the proposed privatization and the desire of big business in Russia to take the same positions as Western corporations. While the GDP is "settling" the situation, but again I will repeat about the laws of capitalism ... All the same, it seems to me that the defense industry is in state hands, a more reasonable decision than the current state of affairs.

      Since 1945, South Korea has been an American semi-colony. And only the end of the 70s began the 80th, the Republic of Korea began to develop high-tech industries, economically the Republic of Korea is a developed state, but is still politically attached to the United States. By the way, North Korea’s policy also contributes to this.

    You can understand the Koreans, that's just whether they will save them. The Yankes do not really talk about the effectiveness of their missile defense system. If they are "patriots", then it is somehow not impressive. After the data on Iraq, especially.

      North Korea can easily respond to the creation of a missile defense by deploying nuclear mines along the border. Their detonation in the presence of a fair wind towards South Korea is guaranteed to cover a third of its territory, including Seoul.

The North Koreans have a hard time getting used to the life and life of the southerners. There is Kim in Russian. G.N.

    This hemorrhoids America does not attach to us, but to China. Since the 16th century, Korea has considered China a protector and liberator. China / Korea is approximately Russia / Serbia. And China cannot in any way merge North Korea. Not only is America pushing Japan into disputes with China, now a bundle is being laid (or rather supported) by contradictions.

      Therefore, Koreans will never (as long as there is the USA) live in one state on the Korean Peninsula! Here, not only China and Russia are on the target, here Japan is always in circulation - divide and conquer! For all these missile launches and nuclear tests - State. dep.

    And they answer that they say that they are not a threat, they do not understand that since Russia and China perceive it as a threat, then this missile defense becomes a headache and a threat to South Korea itself. They would have asked Shoigu to tell them what this threatens them with, he would show them on the fingers of one hand how much will remain for Korea in the event of a war between Russia and the United States and no more in the event of a war between China and the United States, and even faster nothing will remain from Korea if the conflict will be between the United States on the one hand and Russia with China on the other. And no one will ask South Korea for business or not. Not about what you think Koreans.

    It seems to me that both Koreas are a delayed fuse close to Russia and China. Waiting in the wings. After all, in the case of Rubilov between dog-eaters, we and the Chinese will not be willingly involved simply because of our geographic location. And the Japanese are on the watch, waiting for the command. - “fas!” Again the Americans are solving their problems with someone else's hands.
    It’s also interesting that ... doesn’t the South Koreans confuse anything in this situation? Or do they intend to fight strictly in the territory of their neighbors? Or are they very confident in supplying the sea? After all, any war will drive them economically a hundred years back. stone Age.

    The fact that this is not directed against us is known to have been heard from the side of the E.V.R.O.Zh.O.p. Now, not against us and China from the east, too, is nothing tricky.
