South Korea DM Suggests Hosting US Tactical Nukes

China agrees more UN actions needed against North Korea after nuclear test

Mr Moon had called for Moscow to support stronger sanctions against Pyongyang, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States mainland.

The US Forces Korea will reportedly position the launchers at a new base in Seongju, some 300 kilometres south of Seoul, on Thursday.

President Moon ordered officials to consult with the USA on the temporary deployment of the four additional THAAD launchers, following the North's launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile on July 28th.

"There is no change in the government's position to make the final decision on whether the THAAD system will be deployed (in South Korea) after carrying out the general environmental impact assessment of the entire site thoroughly and fairly", a defense ministry statement read.

Although the ministry did not provide an exact time for the installation, a residents' group cited by Yonhap said it had confirmed the plan "through various channels", adding that it was due to take place at 2am local time on Thursday.

He also said it was "ridiculous" that the United States first slapped Russian Federation with sanctions carried in the same bill that penalised North Korea, and "then asked us to help impose sanctions on North Korea".

There are now two launchers at the location, a former golf course.

Mr Putin called for talks with North Korea, and warned against "military hysteria".

Speaking after the talks with the visiting South Korean president, Putin in televised remarks urged North Korea's neighbors to support the Russian-Chinese roadmap.

The deployment of THAAD is of great concern to China.

On Sunday, North Korea announced that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"Without political and diplomatic tools, it is very hard to shift the situation" on the Korean peninsula, Putin said.

We will remind, the first THAAD was deployed in South Korea in may this year.
