US, Japanese Defense Leaders Condemn North Korean Nuke Test

In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang expressed grave concerns over the planned additional installation as he urged South Korea and the USA to withdraw the THAAD system. "We can not accept THAAD under any conditions".

North Korea, meanwhile, has not ceased its daily threats to attack the United States and South Korea. Police said some 8,000 officers were sent to the area near the deployment site. There are now two THAAD launchers in operation at the Seongju base. A THAAD battery is known to require at least six rocket launchers, also involving a fire control and communications unit.

Russian Federation and China have proposed a "double-freeze" plan which would see Pyongyang suspend its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in exchange for a halt in joint US-South Korea military drills.

"The government promised to inform us a day before the additional deployment".

Sony to release Apple's HomePod clone
Invoke: Microsoft partnered with Harman Kardon to create the Invoke speaker, complete with familiar Windows assistant Cortana. Yes, the name is awful but the sound from this rectangular speaker with its aluminum base is impressive.

Residents of Seongju County, North Gyeongsang, park cars to block the road leading to the Thaad battery site and stage a sit-in protest on Wednesday.

Others tied ropes around their bodies and formed a line to stop the police from separating them.

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

U.S. President Donald Trump seized the opportunity to chide Moon for his conciliatory attitude towards North Korea before these tests, tweeting on Sunday, "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!"

Following North Korea's repeated provocations-including launching a missile over northern Japan last week and a sixth nuclear test on Sunday-Moon appeared significantly more comfortable with the presence of the US system over South Korea's skies. Rather, it will undermine the regional strategic balance, harm regional security interests, including China's, and increase tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Geng said. Seoul and Washington have claimed it is only for self-defense against the North.

Putin said during a news conference in China on Tuesday that it was important that all parties including North Korea not face "threats of annihilation" and "step on the path of cooperation".

"What is going on directly near our borders in terms of boosting the potential of a missile defense system, and this concerns both South Korea and Japan, we will resort to our possibilities of developing military potential in this area", Ryabkov cautioned.
