“At the Seoul summit President Xi Jinping said in talks with South Korean counterpart Park Geun-hye that South Korea should show cautiousness in approaches to the problem of deploying a US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system [in South Korea],” a Yonhap source said. A response of the South Korean president is unclear yet.
This year the United States has conducted a survey in South Korea over possible deployment of anti-ballistic missile defense systems THAAD designed to hit short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles in their terminal phase using a hit-to-kill approach.
Park Geun-hye and Xi Jinping discussed this problem “in specific way”, another Yonhap source said, giving no details.
China and Russia voiced concerns over Washington’s attempts to bring a new missile defense system to the South of the Korean Peninsula.
In June former South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin who occupies the post of the chief national security presidential adviser now told lawmakers that Seoul “is not concerned over US deployment of this missile defense system in the South.”
Meanwhile, “capabilities for interception and destruction of North Korean ballistic missile will increase,” he said.
