RT.com, 12 March, 2021-The rumored deployment of American intermediate-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region may trigger a brand new arms race and potential standoff with unpredictable consequences, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.


Speaking to the press on Friday, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was responding to reports in the Japanese media that Washington and Tokyo are discussing plans to place the American weaponry in Japan. Before August 2019, when then-US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the INF Treaty, these weapons were completely forbidden.


“I would like to stress once again that the deployment of American intermediate-range and short-range ground missiles in various regions of the world, including the Asia-Pacific region, in any configuration, would have an extreme destabilizing effect in terms of international and regional security,” she said, noting that it would likely start a brand new arms race without actually strengthening the security of the US and its allies, and a Russian reaction would “undoubtedly” follow.

    This is how wars start. By fear, sheer ignorance, arrogance and purposeful antagonism of other super powers. US needs to think more than twice before this deployment occurs. MM
