The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Residents protest as South Korea deploys missile defense system THAAD

Dwayne Harmon10 September 2017, Newburgh Gazette     President Moon Jae-in, meanwhile, pressed his case on the diplomatic front, holding separate meetings in Russia with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Russian President Vladimir Putin. South Korea’s Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said on Friday the country is exploring all ways to prevent the North from developing the technology to mount nuclear warheads on missiles, Efe news reported. “Military action would certainly be an option”. U.S. President Donald Trump has said that all options are on the table when it comes to dealing with the rogue state, and although he would prefer not to use military action, it would be a “sad day” for North Korea if he did. A US-presented draft resolution calls for an oil embargo on North Korea, an assets freeze on Kim, a ban on textiles and an end to payments of North Korean guest workers. A tactical nuclear weapon, which is created to be used against battlefield targets, generally travels across short ranges and carries a low-yield warhead. Putin said North Koreans would “eat grass” rather than give into outside pressure to disarm, and has called for talks to resolve the crisis. Moon’s government has been forced to harden its stance against the North after the communist state conducted several missile tests and a nuclear blast in recent weeks. However, sanctions have so far done little to stop North Korea boosting its nuclear and missile capacity as it faces off with Trump. …….http://newburghgazette.com/2017/09/10/residents-protest-as-south-korea-deploys-missile-defense/
