    Russia will take into account US missile system deployment in South Korea in its military planning, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control said Friday.

    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.
