US admiral: THAAD in South Korea will not threaten China

44
The missile defense system, which the United States plans to deploy in the Republic of Korea, will not threaten China, it will protect the citizens of the country from possible aggression from the DPRK, reports RIA News statement by the head of the US Pacific Command, Harry Harris.


South Korean technology on the border with the DPRK

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.

Help RIA "News":" The THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System) system is designed for high-altitude over-atmospheric interception of small and medium-range missiles. "

          And in my opinion it’s not at all suckers, they stand on the same level waiting for the team.
          The number of the first echelon of the PRC appeal to me is 300 million.
          Modestly so. But with taste. On the territory of both Korean "states" each has a square meter, it will be skokoooooo.
          No, it seems that there isn’t enough space for everyone, the personnel army will have nowhere to place 2.3 mln.

          The Chinese have already driven an air defense missile system and an air wing, a long-range radar to a bulk island in the South China Sea ... Coastal anti-ship missiles are next in line ... They are dumping islands in the In-China Sea, they will do the same there, without worrying about "partners. In Djibouti, they are already beginning to build a base (air and sea) ... They do not believe the Americans for a second ...

        Believe SGA, do not respect yourself. There were their words about not expanding NATO to the east, there was a nonsense about the fight against Iranian missiles, and many other lies. And we see firsthand the deployment of missile defense around Russia! China in this conversation is only for excuse and displacement of the vector of danger!

          Somewhere we have heard this more than once, but only at our borders. Together with the Chinese, it is necessary to build a p.r.o. in Cuba and Venezuela and to assure the Americans that the pro system does not threaten America, it is designed to protect people from a possible attack, bad terrorists

      And like this: "if China wants to use its influence so that THAAD does not end up in South Korea, then it better use your influence in North Korea". In short, they offer the Chinese, for" their own security purposes, "to remove the Kims' power in North Korea. And then the States will see whether the PRC will behave well (well, according to Washington), then the missile defense will be removed. Probably. When- sometime

            If the rocket penetrated the armor, then none of the tank would have climbed out.
            Conclusion The tank is not destroyed.

              Then, when the armor was broken through, the ammunition would detonate and no one would get out, since they stagedly distinguish the TOW ATGM system as in advertising and emphasize that these systems hit the Russian t-90 tank

    if China wants to use its influence so that the THAAD does not end up in South Korea, then it is better to use its influence on North Korea, ”the admiral said.


    And even better if, within the framework of this influence, China supplies Korea with means to neutralize this missile defense.

      And even better if, within the framework of this influence, China supplies Korea with means to neutralize this missile defense.

      China turned out to be much more intelligent and pragmatic. He is well aware that he can’t just not hinder the installation of missile defense in South Korea - it will seem a little strange in general, given the inadequate behavior of Un.
      Understanding that in the form of an answer he will have to invest enormous amounts of money in the form of an answer to PRo, and the Chinese, unlike his northern neighbor, can count money.
      Just sat down and from the USA
      The United States proposed to the UN Security Council a draft resolution to tighten sanctions against the DPRK. According to the Permanent Representative of the PRC to the UN, Liu Jie, China actively supported this project, RIA Novosti reports.

      The issue of introducing tougher sanctions against the DPRK came after the republic conducted a nuclear test at the very beginning of January 2016, and then launched a ballistic missile.

      On Thursday, the United States circulated its draft resolution to the UN, and as a result of the meeting, the Chinese envoy announced his support. According to him, this resolution will make it possible to "denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, peace and stability."

      I think that Eun will understand this signal perfectly because China is able to crush S. Korea with one finger (he already sent the first signal)
      Chinese banks, including the branch of the country's largest Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), have frozen accounts held by North Koreans, Reuters reports.

    US Admiral Harry Harris, like all American politicians, fooling around with their global exclusivity, say what they want. From the time of the USSR to the present, the United States, advancing its armed forces to the borders of Russia, China, etc., shamelessly, impudently smiling, repeat and repeat that its advance does not threaten Russia or China at all. And nevertheless, every year, when preparing the US military budget, it is Russia that is mentioned as a real and very big threat to the US. So why should Russia or China take their word for the "peaceful" intentions of the United States ?! What, found fools? This is not a ward number 6 for the mad! Not only Yankees studied in schools!
