BLAGOVESHCHENSK, April 12 (Itar-Tass) - If an armed conflict breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, there is a risk that the North Korean missiles will fly at the destinations different from the ones they were expected to his originally, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday.
“My apprehensions are not linked to the prospect of Pyongyang’s using them against Russia,” he said. “I’m simply wondering where those weapons will fly at all.”
“They can be meant against different countries but will suddenly turn towards us,” Rogozin said.
“We must prevent a twist of events in this direction, because we can’t put at risk either our territory or our citizens and we have Space and Air Defense Troops for the purpose,” he added.
Rogozin pointed out the permanent monitoring of the situation in Korea on the part of forces of Russia’s Military District, adding: “But still we believe there’s a huge political and diplomatic resource for eliminating the problem.”
