US Ready to Move Additional THAAD Systems to South Korea as Quickly as Possible

The United States is ready to quickly move the remaining pieces of THAAD system into South Korea, US Department of Defense spokesperson Capt. Jeff Davis said in a briefing on Monday.

"We are certainly ready to move additional pieces in as quickly as we can," Davis told reporters when asked about THAAD.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who officially came to office on May 10, has repeatedly criticized the previous government under impeached leader Park Geun-hye for agreeing to host the THAAD system without first seeking parliamentary approval. Moon subsequently suspended the deployment in order to carry out an investigation into the environmental consequences of the move.
However, on Friday, North Korea conducted their second intercontinental ballistic missile test in less than a month. This latest provocation triggered Moon’s decision to resume deliveries of additional THAAD components.
