MOSCOW, July 8, (APP/AFP) - Russia warned Friday that the US deployment of an advanced missile defence system in South Korea would have "irreparable consequences", echoing warnings by China of a threat to regional security.

 

"This missile defence system tends to undermine stability in the

region...We hope that our partners will avoid any actions that could have

irreparable consequences," the Russian foreign ministry said after the US and South Korea announced they would deploy the system to thwart potential attacks from North Korea .
