- The United States will continue its efforts to deploy land-based intermediate-range missiles in the western Pacific, including Japan and South Korea.
- China and Russia, however, will explore various avenues to dissuade regional U.S. allies from acceding to Washington's wishes.
- Overall, Washington will have few problems in deploying the missiles in places like Guam, but it will have a hard time convincing foreign allies to host them.
