UNITED NATIONS, October 5. /TASS/. Discussions of US, South Korean and Japanese authorities about potential deployment of deterrence forces on the Korean Peninsula are irresponsible, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Anna Yevstigneyeva said Wednesday.
"In late September, joint military exercise of the US, South Korea and Japan took place for the first time in five years, which involved a nuclear aircraft carrier and attacks on critically important objects on North Korean territory. Authorities of these states carry out irresponsible discussions about deployment of US deterrence forces, including nuclear ones, on the Korean Peninsula," she said, speaking at the UN Security Council meeting.
