Leading presidential candidate Moon Jae-in has suggested that the planned deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery would go ahead under his administration, in an interview with the local news agency Newsis on Sunday.
In an apparent reversal of his previous position, Moon reiterated it was “desirable” to postpone the decision of the THAAD deployment until the next South Korean government begins its term, but seemed to suggest that he would not cancel the agreement if elected President.
