S.Korea to temporarily deploy four remaining THAAD launchers - ministry

Ag groups warn Trump KORUS withdrawal misguided

Trump agrees to sell South Korea arms worth billions of dollars

South Korea today said, it will temporarily deploy four remaining launchers for a US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system (THAAD) after the completion of an environmental assessment by the government.

China's remarks come after the South Korea Defence Ministry announced it would carry out the temporary deployment of launching vehicles at 2am tomorrow (September 7) at its site in Seongju, south of Seoul.

Mr Moon said the leaders agreed that reducing regional tension and "quickly solving" the security challenges posed by North Korea's nuclear and missile programme were critical.

Russian Federation shares the concerns voiced by China on the plans to deploy the THAAD system in South Korea, he noted. Others say the system will cause Seongju to become a prime target for North Korean attacks. Now, the missile defense system reliably closes the sky above South Korea. The police tried to disperse the protesters, but some of them attempted to entry the building, which prompted the clashes.

Redskins safety Su'a Cravens talked out of retiring
The Washington Redskins almost lost their 22-year old safety this weekend - not to an injury or a suspension, but to retirement. Cravens just turned 22 in July. "He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family".

Thousands of police will likely be deployed on Thursday to prevent additional clashes at the site, according to Yonhap.

Speaking after a meeting Wednesday with the president of close USA ally, South Korea, Putin urged support for a Russian-Chinese roadmap that seeks a North Korean nuclear freeze in exchange for the US and South Korea curbing military drills. The camp already has two operational launchers.

Ahead of the meeting with Mr Putin, he said the situation could get out of hand if North Korea's missile and nuclear tests are not stopped. The weekend explosion was Pyongyang's strongest-ever nuclear test and follows launches in July of an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the US mainland.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for talks with North Korea, saying sanctions are not a solution.

The first Test will start on 24 May at Lord's while the second Test will take place at the Emerald Headingley from 1 June. But that was not the way of the team and that was not what we were proud of as examples of how the game should be played.

The US is also expected to present a North Korean sanctions resolution at the United Nations, and is aiming for a vote to take place next week, AFP reported on Monday.

The readout was released shortly before Trump was to speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose opinion is critical for getting the U.N.to apply tighter sanctions on North Korea, including possibly restricting China's oil sales to its unpredictable neighbor.

"It is clear that it is impossible to solve the problems of the Korean peninsula by sanctions and pressure alone", Putin said at the economic forum in Vladivostok, following talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, who will meet Mr Putin in Vladivostok on Thursday, said before his departure from Japan: "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".
