“As Korea speeds along with the deployment of the U.S.-led Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) system by sealing a land deal with Lotte Group to acquire a golf course in Seongju County, North Gyeongsang, Beijing is threatening diplomatic, economic and possibly military retaliation. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said through a press briefing Tuesday that Beijing is ‘firmly opposed to and strongly dissatisfied with the fact that’ Seoul is working with Washington to accelerate the deployment process of a Thaad battery and ‘ignoring China’s interests and concerns.’ He added Beijing will ‘resolutely take necessary actions to safeguard its own security interests,’ without specifying what measures it will take.” (03/01/17)
