Russian Military Chief Criticizes US, Japan, South Korea Drills

Russian Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces General Valery Gerasimov
Russia's military chief warned on Monday that military exercises by Japan, the United States and South Korea aimed at countering North Korea only raise hysteria and create more instability in the region.


Russian Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces General Valery Gerasimov, issued his warning in Tokyo as the United States, Japan and South Korea began a two-day exercise to practice tracking missiles amid rising tension over North Korea's weapons programs.

"Carrying out military training in regions surrounding North Korea will only heighten hysteria and make the situation unstable," Gerasimov said at the beginning of a meeting with Japanese Minister of Defense Itsunori Onodera, Reuters reported.

This week's exercise by the United States and its two Asian allies, in which they will share information on tracking ballistic missiles, comes just days after large-scale drills by US and South Korean forces that North Korea said made the outbreak of war "an established fact".

North Korea says its weapons programs are necessary to counter US aggression.
