  • Korea, US, Japan Vow Strongest Pressure Against N. Korea

South Korean local residents are protesting against the US THAAD deployment missile systems.

On Sunday, North Korea announced that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"China is seriously concerned", foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular news briefing yesterday, reiterating China's opposition to the deployment of THAAD by the United States and South Korea.

When asked if Russian Federation may consider the deployment of its systems in response to this threat, Ryabkov stressed that "all options are on the table".

The ministry noted that six launchers will give the US a full THAAD battery, meaning it will have a much better chance of detecting and shooting down missiles from the North.

SEOUL-Pyongyang's recent string of missile and nuclear tests has brought the US closer to its allies in Tokyo and Seoul, rather than dividing them as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had hoped, a top USA naval commander said.

There are now two launchers at the location, a former golf course.

Meanwhile, North Korea shows no signs of ending its nuclear and ballistic missile tests, calling its recent nuclear test and other "self-defense" measures a "gift package" for the U.S., warning that others are on the way if Washington continues its "reckless provocations".

The ministry said additional launchers, based on consultations between Korea and the United States, will be moved to the base along with the construction materials.

Trump is to speak Wednesday with China's president.

The South Korean newswire service Yonhap reported Wednesday that Seoul's Ministry of National Defense confirmed the installation of four more launchers while stressing "the urgency of mobilizing the assets, now stored at a USFK compound in the country, amid growing threats from the unpredictable neighbor".

The U.S. military is to add more launchers Thursday to a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense battery that it began setting up in rural South Korea earlier this year.

He complimented Mr Putin and the Russian government over what he said were diverse efforts to find diplomatic solutions to the problem.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, who will meet Mr Putin in Vladivostok on Thursday, said before his departure from Japan: "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path". He said it "offers a genuine way to defuse the tensions and a step-by-step settlement".
