Moscow is deeply concerned by the agreement between Washington and Seoul to deploy US THAAD missile defense in South Korea.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — This move will have a highly negative impact on global strategic stability, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.

"Despite strong and persistent protests by the Russian side and a number of other countries, the United States and the Republic of Korea have reached an agreement on deploying THAAD missile defense on the territory of the Republic of Korea. This step causes great concern," the ministry said in a statement.

According to the ministry, increased US missile defense capabilities in the Pacific Rim undermine the existing strategic balance of forces both in this region and beyond.

"Such actions, regardless of the reasoning, have the most negative impact on global strategic stability, which Washington likes to claim its commitment to. They are also fraught with the threat of aggravated tensions in the region and the creation of new challenges in solving complex problems on the Korean Peninsula, including the denuclearization task," the statement reads.
