SINGAPORE, 4 June. /Offset. TASS Yevgeny Solovyov/. The deployment by the United States elements of the global missile defense in Asia only aggravated the problems of the Korean Peninsula, said the Deputy head of the Ministry of defense of the Russian Federation Alexander Fomin.

“We are convinced that ongoing in the region under the auspices of the United States to deploy elements of a global missile defense not only not solve the existing problems on the Korean Peninsula, but, on the contrary, will only exacerbate them,” – said Fomin, speaking at the international conference “Shangri-La dialogue.”

“It is important to joint efforts to prevent the development of the situation crisis scenario and move the process towards negotiations that would meet the security interests of all countries in the region”, – said Deputy Minister of defense.

Capacity ABOUT Japan

Sounding also in Japan the idea of capacity building of the national missile defense cannot but cause concern, said Fomin.
