True, Beijing has even more reasons to be worried. North Korea's unabashed mistreatment of the international community is a thorn in its side. The recent nuclear and missile tests provide a solid pretext for the United States to deploy a high-altitude missile defense system in South Korea. Beijing has already voiced its opposition to this move, regarding it as a direct security threat.

Despite being considered one of the most aggressive countries in history Russia seems to be trying to to keep the peace in the area. North Korea seems set on doing whatever they want with no regard to how any feels. I hope Russia is able to talk some sense into them.

Russia also had harsh words for the U.S. and South Korea, condemning the “unprecedented” exercises. “The development of the situation on the Korean peninsula and around it is causing growing concern,” said a statement issued Monday, as reported by the Kremlin-funded RT news channel.

I think these two countries have some kind of respect for each other and Russia is trying to keep the peace around the world for now. I can say this whoever North Korea is practicing for it is not the Russians.
