According to Kim Hyun Joong, the deployment of elements of US missile defenses in South Korea will aggravate the situation even further.

Last week, Washington announced the deployment of THAAD missile interceptors in South Korea.

Seoul and Washington first agreed to deploy THAAD in July 2016 amid South Korea’s growing unease about Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs. The system is designed to intercept short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles at the terminal incoming stage.
