Moscow: US THAAD Missile Defense Systems in S Korea Target Russia, China
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US THAAD missile defense systems in South Korea target Russia and China, Georgiy Borisenko, Director of the North America Department at the Russian Foreign Ministry said in an exclusive interview.

According to Borisenko, Washington is merely using the alleged N. Korean missile threat as a pretext for deploying THAAD systems close to the borders of Russia and China, Sputnik reported.

"But the fact is that these systems are absolutely incapable of preventing North Korea from retaliating in the event of aggression against it. The border on the Korean Peninsula passes so that Seoul is in the range of the long-range artillery of the neighboring state. THAAD systems are not capable of intercepting artillery shells. Therefore, they are simply not needed against N. Korea," the Russian diplomat said.

"So, we and our partners in China are well aware that THAAD is directed against Russia and China," Borisenko stressed.

Moscow and Beijing oppose THAAD's deployment, saying it could further deteriorate the nuclear crisis and provoke North Korean aggression. Russia, alongside China, also criticized the increase in South Korea's joint military activities with Washington as a danger to the peace and stability of the region.
