Berlin Regards North Korean Missile Test as Threat to Japan's Security
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Reports emerged last week, citing military officials, indicating that Seoul was planning to deploy dozens of the German-made Taurus cruise missiles by the end of the year.

"If true, Germany's decision is an act that violates the peace and that ignores even its national legislation banning the export of weapons to regions of conflict, and that will strain the situation on the Korean peninsula more," the embassy said in a statement obtained by RIA Novosti.

The statement noted that the sale of German missiles to South Korea, "fraught with breaching peace on the Korean peninsula and in the region, should be discontinued immediately."
