Missile shield stayed
SEOUL: South Korea’s presidential Blue House said that the country would suspend an additional deployment of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defence missile system until the completion of a green audit.
A senior official said that additional deployment would be decided only after completing the environmental evaluation.
Around two weeks before the country’s presidential by-election on May 9, part of the system elements, including radar and two mobile launchers, were transported to a golf course at Soseong-ri village in Seongju county, North Gyeongsang province. Xinhua
