Final 4 Thaad launchers to be installed tomorrow

The ministry said Seoul and Washington chose to speed up the deployment in view of Pyongyang provocations in recent weeks including two intercontinental ballistic missile launches and its sixth nuclear test.

Following North Korea's repeated provocations-including launching a missile over northern Japan last week and a sixth nuclear test on Sunday-Moon appeared significantly more comfortable with the presence of the USA system over South Korea's skies.
