S.Korea to temporarily deploy four remaining THAAD launchers - ministry

Protests and Police Conflict Expected at THAAD Deployment

Mr Moon had called for Moscow to support stronger sanctions against Pyongyang, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States mainland.

China's remarks come after the South Korea Defence Ministry announced it would carry out the temporary deployment of launching vehicles at 2am tomorrow (September 7) at its site in Seongju, south of Seoul.

China has reiterated its opposition to the installation of a U.S. missile defence system in South Korea, demanding on Wednesday (Sept 6) that deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (Thaad) battery should be immediately halted. The police tried to disperse the protesters, but some of them attempted to entry the building, which prompted the clashes.

A THAAD battery normally consists of six launchers, but only two have been operational so far at the site in rural Seongju.

A number of countries have firmly condemned North Korea's test calling for retaliation.

"It is clear that it is impossible to solve the problems of the Korean peninsula by sanctions and pressure alone", Putin said at the economic forum in Vladivostok, following talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.

Trump also discussed North Korea's purported hydrogen bomb test with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

He said it was important that all parties, including North Korea, should not face "threats of annihilation" and "step on the path of cooperation".

"What is going on directly near our borders in terms of boosting the potential of a missile defense system, and this concerns both South Korea and Japan, we will resort to our possibilities of developing military potential in this area", Ryabkov cautioned.

"We call on all interested parties to take a closer look at this initiative which, in our view, offers a realistic way to reduce tensions and gradually approach a settlement", Putin said on Wednesday.
