US hopes to complete anti-missile deal with republic of Korea June 28, 2016

The United States wants to wrap up discussions with Republic of Korea on the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence System (THAAD) missile defence system, the Pentagon said Friday, two days after North Korea’s latest missile tests. Seoul and Washington have for weeks been in talks about deploying the system in Korea to protect against the potential threat from Pyongyang. North Korea tested two Musudan medium-range missiles just hours apart on Wednesday. Korea has had reservations about THAAD because of opposition from China, which sees it as a threat to its own nuclear deterrent.
