U.S. to deploy more THAAD missile defence launchers to South Korea

South Korea’s defence ministry announced Monday that the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) will soon install four more THAAD missile defense launchers at its new southern base.

The US Forces Korea (USFK) will install another four THAAD launchers at the converted golf course in Seongju County, some 300 kilometers south of Seoul, the ministry said. There are currently two THAAD launchers in operation there, while four others are ready for deployment, the ministry added.

“The remaining launchers will soon be tentatively deployed through South Korea-U.S. consultations in order to counter North Korea’s advancing nuclear and missile threats,” the Ministry of National Defence said in a statement.
