THAAD should be postponed until next government: Minjoo

“The next ROK government should be responsible for this task,” says spokesperson

South Korea's main opposition Minjoo (Democratic) Party on Tuesday called for Seoul to postpone the deployment of the U.S.-made Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery until the next South Korean government takes office.

Minjoo’s announcement comes two days after multiple reports revealed that the Ministry of National Defense (MND) is expediting the deployment process, aiming to finish it by May next year - a month earlier than was originally planned.
