This measure was taken in response to continued DPRK missile tests.
The United States began deploying anti-missile systems THAAD in South Korea in response to North Korea testing ballistic missiles.
“The continuing provocative actions of North Korea, including yesterday’s launch of several missiles, only confirm the wisdom of our decision to deploy THAAD in South Korea”, – quotes the US Pacific command Admiral Harry Harris.
It is noted that such a move by the Armed forces of the United States can strengthen the conflict between South Korea and China, which considers deploying THAAD is a violation of the security balance in the region.
On the eve of the DPRK launched four ballistic missiles at Japan, three of which fell into the sea near the Japanese coast.
