According to Chinese military analyst Song Zhongping, the deployment of US missiles in Japan will also pose a threat to both North Korea and Russia. 

In his opinion, the Chinese side has the right to "take strategic actions" in response to such provocative and dangerous actions by Washington.

Earlier, the Sankei Shimbun wrote that the United States asked the Japanese government to deploy medium-range missiles on the islands of the Japanese archipelago to maintain a balance of power with China in the region.
