MOSCOW (Sputnik) Mikhail Ulyanov said at a conference hosted by the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency that Washington and Seoul's military buildup "provokes Pyongyang toward new unreasonable steps."

"The deployment of missile defense complex affects not only the interests of Pyongyang, but China and to a certain extent Russia. Naturally, this will be taken into account in China's, Russia's and North Korea's military planning," Ulyanov said.
