Korea on U.S. missile defense system

20 Mai 2017

Wang and former South Korean Prime Minister Lee Hae-chan were expected to discuss ways of containing North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons activities as well as the economic fallout over the deployment in South Korea of the USA missile defence system called THAAD.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In warned Wednesday there was a "high possibility" of military clashes along the border with North Korea as tensions mount over Pyongyang's weapons ambitions.

Both the UN Security Council and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday slammed the missile launches.

"The government has kept the stance that the inter-Korean dialogue channel should be reopened". "The ministry has conducted several internal reviews about how to restore it, but nothing specific has been scheduled yet".

North Korea has been under unrelenting pressure to rein in its nuclear programme, with the USA threatening to step up military force, the United Nations raising the possibility of tougher sanctions and even the country's sole ally China expressing growing frustration.

They were referring to a recent meeting between US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Asean officials in Washington, during which Tillerson called on Asean countries to degrade diplomatic ties and cut interactions with North Korea.

US President Donald Trump is looking forward to working closely with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in and is willing to make peace with North Korea through engagement if the conditions are right, according to a top Seoul envoy.

In the song, group members chant that "about THAAD we say no, no, no", a reference to the U.S. Army's missile defense system formally known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense.

Mr Trump wants South Korea to pay for the system, but Mr Moon has said he will reconsider the deployment, because of strong domestic opposition and also because of Chinese anger that Thaad upsets the regional strategic status quo and its suspicions that it will be used to spy on it.

The North's KCNA news agency said Sunday's launch tested its capability to carry a "large-size nuclear warhead".
