Bipartisan group of United States senators introduces resolution welcoming Moon

Bipartisan group of United States senators introduces resolution welcoming Moon”

Thousands of demonstrators formed a human chain around the American embassy in the South Korean capital, Seoul, to register their disapproval of the US-built THAAD missile defense system in their country.

While US Forces Korea is responsible for deployment costs and management of the South Korean THAAD system, the Aegis Ashore system in Japan would be paid for by the Japanese government and managed by the Japan Self-Defense Forces, with the US military operating THAAD X-band radar installed in Aomori in northern Japan and Kyoto in southern Japan.

The four launchers in question were supposed to be added to two launchers already in place, which had been "accounted for" by the South Korean authorities.

However, the USA interviewer also said, "President Moon believes he is going to get the green light from President Trump to have these bilateral talks with North Korea, to begin this inter-Korean dialogue". "." President Moon also pointed out that Pyongyang's nuclear and missile threats jeopardize the safety of the whole world.

The resolution also called for the two countries to work together to "fully and effectively enforce existing sanctions (on North Korea) and consider the need to take immediate action to pass additional and meaningful new measures".

Moon, who is set to meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington later this month, emphasized that the assessment is part of "due process" necessary for the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system.

The United States has stressed the "absolute importance" of THAAD deployment in South Korea since it was first installed in April.

Ahead of the vote, the U.S. had already installed a pair of the launchers, which Moon complained was an attempt to get the system in under the lame duck government before his election.

The South Korean leader has emphasized, however, that the decision to temporarily suspend the THAAD deployment pending an environmental study did not mean a change in the country's decision to host the U.S. missile shield.

"The Senate welcomes His Excellency Moon Jae-in, the President of the Republic of Korea, on his first official visit to the United States", the resolution said, reaffirming the alliance between the two countries as well as the US commitment to South Korea's defense.

"But it's not clear that, even under President Trump, that he will agree to allow you to negotiate with the North Koreans without any preconditions". (KOREAN) "We will maintain our security with a strong South Korea-U.S. alliance and overwhelming defense capabilities".
