Earlier, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang said that Beijing was “seriously concerned about US plans to deploy its missile defense systems on the Korean Peninsula,” urging Americans to “take into account” these concerns.
“THAAD (missile defense system) does not threaten China. She is there to protect Americans in (South) Korea, their families and Koreans. And if China wants to use its influence so that THAAD does not end up in South Korea, then it is better for it to use its influence on North Korea, ”said the admiral.
Recall that the decision to deploy THAAD in South Korea was made in connection with the ongoing nuclear and rocket tests in the DPRK. Currently, the United States and Kazakhstan are discussing the details of the deployment operation.
