United States anti-missile system's deployment underway in S.Korea

United States anti-missile system's deployment underway in S.Korea

Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi urged North Korea, South Korea and the United States to halt their military actions that have generated the new round of tension.

North Korea criticises the drills and has previously conducted missile launches to coincide with them. It added that the "continued provocative actions by North Korea only confirm the prudence of (the) alliance decision previous year to deploy THAAD to South Korea".

He called on North Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the USA and South Korea halting the military exercises.

The ramped-up tests come as leader Kim Jong Un pushes for a nuclear and missile program that can deter what he calls USA and South Korean hostility toward the North.

"New Zealand strongly urges North Korea to cease such tests and abide by its worldwide obligations".

The missile was sacked on Monday from the Tongchang-ri region, near the North's border with China, the South Korean military said.

North Korea has fired four ballistic missiles, with at least three landing in Japan-controlled waters, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has told his parliament.

In response to the launch, South Korea's acting president Hwang Kyo-Ahn convened an emergency National Security Council (NSC) meeting, the presidential office said in a statement.

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said on Twitter that the world "won't allow" North Korea to continue on its "destructive path".

US national security adviser H.R. McMaster and senior South Korean presidential official Kim Kwan-jin held a phone conversation after the missile firings.

Tensions between China and South Korea have escalated in recent weeks over the Thaad deployment, part of measures to prevent Kim from gaining the ability to strike the continental U.S. with a nuclear warhead.

Wang also expressed concern over deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) by the US and South Korea (ROK).

"China is opposed to the DPRK's launches in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions", foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular press briefing, using the initials of the North's formal name. It could come online as early as next month, South Korea's Yonhap News reported.

CHINA warned yesterday that North Korea and the United States were like two trains racing toward a "head-on collision", calling on both sides to apply the brakes and avert a security crisis.
