Doubt cast over THAAD sys­tem

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A pos­si­ble South Korean pres­i­den­tial con­tender said on Thursday his coun­try should re­con­sider plans to de­ploy an ad­vanced US mis­sile de­fense sys­tem, a move Wash­ing­ton is likely to see as dis­rup­tive. Lib­eral op­po­si­tion politi­cian Moon Jae-in said the se­cu­rity ben­e­fits of hav­ing Ter­mi­nal High-Al­ti­tude Area De­fense, or THAAD, would be cur­tailed by wors­ened re­la­tions with neigh­bor­ing coun­tries in­clud­ing Rus­sia and China.
