presstv-russia to react to thaad expansion: moscow

Russia says it will need to react to the expansion of the so-called US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea, as Seoul urges Washington to install more of the missile shield system in response to the fresh nuclear test by Pyongyang.“It inevitably will raise the question about our reaction, about our military balances,” said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov at a BRICS summit in China’s eastern city of Xiamen on Monday.Moscow has on a number of occasions voiced its strong opposition against the deployment of the US shield system in South Korea. Back in May, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that “such a development is fraught with the most serious negative consequences for international and regional strategic stability.”It

presstv-china, russia to step up anti-thaad efforts

Beijing says China and Russia have agreed to step up their coordinated efforts in opposition to the planned deployment in South Korea of a US missile system, insisting the move will harm regional security.In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Beijing and Moscow had agreed “they will continue to strengthen their coordinated opposition to THAAD,” an acronym for the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense.South Korea decided last year to deploy US-made THAAD missile system on its soil as a countermeasure to what Seoul and Washington call threats posed by North Korean ballistic missiles.China and Russia, however, worry that the deployment would further destabilize the already-restive Korean Peninsula. They also say THAAD’s powerful radar system can penetrate thei

presstv-russia vows harsh response to destructive us bids

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Moscow will give a tough response to US measures aimed at hurting it as a diplomatic spat between the two countries escalates.Speaking to students at Russia’s top diplomacy school on Friday, Lavrov said Moscow “will have a tough response to the things that come totally out of the blue to hurt us and are driven solely by the desire to spoil our relations with the United States.”His comments came a day after the United States ordered Russia to shutter its consulate in San Francisco and close offices in Washington and New York within 48 hours in response to Moscow’s drastic reduction of US diplomatic personnel in Russia last month.The Russian foreign minister went on to complain that Washington had only given Moscow two days to comply with its deman

why north korea can unite russia and japan (op-ed)

Moscow - Tokyo relations are clearly moving in a positive direction. The recent meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is evidence: Putin now refers to Japan as a “good neighbor” and a “promising partner.”But both positive and negative forces could have a bearing on the future of this relationship.On the downside, Russia and Japan have found themselves on opposing sides of the U.S.-China great power rivalry.In response to China’s military expansion and the nuclear threat from North Korea, U.S. President Donald Trump has embarked on strengthening relations with Japan, South Korea, and several other Southeast Asian countries that Washington considers allies in containing the Chinese threat.The U.S. is accelerating plans to modernize its Pacific Fleet,

presstv-russia warns of further retaliation against us

A top Russian diplomat has warned that expulsion of US diplomats and seizure of US diplomatic properties would not suffice as a response to a recent barrage of sanctions imposed by Washington on Moscow, warning that more retaliatory moves would come if the US decides to go further.Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Sunday that Moscow was carefully pondering what could come next in response to the Thursday's passage of controversial sanctions in the US Senate.“If the US side decides to move further towards... deterioration, we will answer. We will respond in kind. We will ... retaliate,” Ryabkov said, calling the Congress bill “weird and unacceptable,” and saying it was “the last straw.”The senior diplomat confirmed that Moscow’s Friday move to order a drastic reduction in

presstv-nato instrument of us foreign policy: putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has again criticized the expansion of NATO, saying the Western military alliance has become a tool in the hand of the United States to advance its foreign policy.“Once a country becomes a NATO member, it is hard to resist the pressures of the US. And all of a sudden any weapons system can be placed in this country,” Putin said in an interview aired late on Tuesday, while calling NATO “an instrument of America’s foreign policy.”The Russian president said Moscow would not remain idle and watch NATO’s increased military activity at its western borders, adding that the alliance was committing a “big, glaring mistake” by engaging in more build-up at Russia’s doorsteps as it would drag both the United States and Russia into a new arms race.A sniper of the German

The Russian general staff has warned of the ramifications of the US stationing of anti-ballistic missile (ABM) systems in Europe and on warships patrolling Russia’s borders, saying the deployments create the potential for America to launch a nuclear attack on Russia.“The presence of American ABM sites in Europe and ABM-capable ships in the seas and oceans close to Russia’s territory creates a powerful clandestine potential for delivering a surprise nuclear missile strike against Russia,” Viktor Poznikhir, the deputy head of operations of the Russian general staff, said at a disarmament conference in Geneva.The top Russian commander warned that the US’ global missile system provokes a new arms race, noting that the system, which is deployed at sites in Alaska, Romania, and Poland, compromis

presstv-russia gives solemn warning over us sanctions bill
