On Sunday, July 29, South Korea will deploy four additional units of the U.S. THAAD anti-missile defense system, after North Korea’s recent launch of yet another intercontinental ballistic missile, according to Reuters.
“The deployment of the additional Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) units had been delayed after the initial two units, after South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered an environmental assessment,” the media informs.
It is noted, that China was informed about the plan, so that the procedure moves quicker. Previously China objected to THAAD deployment, as it couldn’t prevent the missile threat, and at the same time it would destabilize the regional security.
The Ministry of National Defence of South Korea informs that the US military will bring strategically important weapons systems to South Korea after yet another ballistic missile launch by North Korea.
