May 25, 2017. Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces in South Korea defended the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system, citing the latest missile tests conducted by North Korea.
The deployment of THAAD has been met by local opposition which claim that the system may be seen as a threat by China. They have voiced concern that China may scale back trade with South Korea due to the deployment. China would rather not have such an advanced system so close to Beijing.
