The United States started deploying advanced anti-missile defense system in South Korea to counter threats from North Korea.

The deployment announcement was made as North Korean state media said leader Kim Jong Un had personally supervised Monday’s missile launches by an army unit that is positioned to strike US bases in Japan, stepping up threats against Washington as US troops conduct joint military exercises with South Korea.

The equipment needed to set up Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence system (THAAD), a missile defence system, have arrived in South Korea, according to American and South Korean defence forces.

Admiral Harry Harris, head of the US Pacific Command, said in the statement that “continued provocative actions by North Korea, to include launch of multiple missiles, only confirm the prudence of our alliance decision last year to deploy THAAD to South Korea”.
