China hints at increase in missile defenses to counter THAAD

Foreign minister also proposes 'peaceful way' to resolve Korean conflict

China may have hinted at installing more radars and missile defense systems at its borders should the U.S.'s Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system be deployed in South Korea.

Meanwhile, the Chinese foreign minister has also spoken of the need to parallel the talks on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and transition from a ceasefire to an actual peace treaty.
