RUSSIA PLACES THEIR MILITARY ON HIGH ALERT OVER U.S. JAPAN SOUTH KOREAN WAR GAMES AIMED AT NORTH KOREA
DEC 14 2010
Russia announced Tuesday that its
armed forces in the east are on high alert. This comes in
light of what it calls an "inadequate situation" on the Korean peninsula as
tensions have increased in recent weeks between the North and South.
The head of Russia's military said they continue to follow what is happening and have taken measures to raise the forces' combat readiness.
On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov welcomed his North Korean counterpart to Moscow. In the meeting, Lavrov expressed concern with North Korea's ongoing uranium enrichment activities. He also condemned North Korea's attack on the South's Yeonpyeong Island, which has been the source of the recent increased tension.
South Korea's top nuclear official is on his way to Moscow to discuss the disclosure of North Korea's newest uranium enrichment facility and the shelling of Yeonpyeong Island.
Russia joined the U.S. and others in condemning the November attack, which killed four people and brought about the highest tension on the peninsula in years.
