Russia seriously worried by Japan looking at U.S. missile defence -RIA

MOSCOW, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Russia is seriously concerned that Japan may deploy the U.S. Aegis Ashore missile-defence system on its soil to counter North Korea’s missile threats, RIA news agency cited Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Wednesday.

Ryabkov also said that sanctions should not be imposed on North Korea indefinitely, and that they would yield no result without dialogue, the agency reported. (Writing by Dmitry Solovyov; Editing by Christian Lowe)
