North Korea threatens tough response against US missile defence deploymentComments
North Korea’s military has threatened to take what its called “ a physical response” to a move by the US and South Korea to deploy an advanced missile defence system.
The so called Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) anti-missile system will be used to counter the threat from the north in the light of Pyongyang’s growing nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities.
The announcement is the latest move by the allies against the North which conducted its fourth nuclear test this year and launched a long-range rocket, resulting in tough new U.N. sanctions and a series of bilateral sanctions against it.
North Korea has called the planned deployment as “a declaration of war” and vowed a tough response.
