South Korea backs United States missile system

Thursday, 5 January 2017

SEOUL: South Korea is committed to deploying an advanced US missile defence system this year despite opposition from China, a minister said, even as opposition lawmakers head to Beijing with a different message.

Seoul and Washington agreed to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in the South after a string of North Korean nuclear and missile tests prompting strong objections from China.

Democratic Party said it would review the deployment if it wins the upcoming presidential elections, and a group of its lawmakers flew to Beijing to meet Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and other top officials.

Originally set for December this year, the country’s presidential election may be brought forward if Park’s impeachment is upheld by the Constitutional Court, which has up to six months to decide.
