Ministry: More THAAD Launchers To Be Deployed Thursday

Ministry: More THAAD Launchers To Be Deployed Thursday”

Just a few hours later, North Korea carried out a second test-launch of its Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM); Moon ordered the immediate deployment of four additional launchers the following day.

"The situation is very grave".

"A special measure is urgently needed to stop their recklessness".

With the four additional launchers installed, U.S. Forces Korea will have a fully operational THAAD battery at its base in Seongju.

Moon also expressed regret over clashes between protesters and police that left dozens injured Thursday when the USA military added the four launchers to the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense System in rural Seongju.

Two truck-mounted launchers and a powerful X-band radar are in operation at the former golf course.

North Korea says it needs to develop its weapons to defend itself against what it sees as US aggression.

Moon and Abe in their meeting agreed to cooperate on seeking tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea and pledged to strengthen efforts to persuade Beijing and Moscow into cutting off oil supplies to the North, said Yoon Young-chan, Moon's chief press secretary. Russian Federation and China have the closest diplomatic relations with the insular state of North Korea, but both have also condemned the North's recent weapons tests. The ministry later explained that it was mentioned as one of several ways to respond to the North Korean nuclear threat, but was not a proposal to bring nukes back to South Korea.

South Korea has lashed back, blasting K-pop music, local radio and global news in hopes of reaching the ears of northern soldiers.

North Korea said it would respond to any UN sanctions and USA pressure with "powerful counter measures", accusing the United States of aiming to start a war.

Putin says he believes President Donald Trump's administration is willing to defuse tensions over North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Shin said it's important that South Korea continue to work closely with military allies, such as the United States, while also developing its own independent defense strategy.

Moon temporarily halted the THAAD installation for environmental reviews to ease residents' concerns. Trump, who also once favored talks with Pyongyang, recently said this was "not the answer".

South Korean police have clashed with hundreds of demonstrators rallying against the deployment of more rocket launchers from a USA missile system to their country.

He pointed to the Iran nuclear deal, which was negotiated successfully by the Obama administration but has looked fragile under Trump, saying "if the USA had spent even one fifth of the time and effort on the North Korean issue compared with the Iranian case, then the North Korean nuclear issue could have been resolved".

The ministry said the exercises had been planned well in advance.
