Putin: U.S. focus on N. Korea is ‘camouflage’

Russian president claims missile defense against Russia behind U.S. interest in DPRK nuclear program

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the U.S. focus on Iran and North Korea’s nuclear programs is a smoke screen for building up missile defenses around nuclear powers like Russia.

Speaking at a meeting on the development of Russia’s defense sector, Putin claimed the U.S. is still bolstering missile defense systems, despite initiatives like the Iran nuclear deal.
