The head of Democratic United Party Moon Jae-in, who won the presidential elections in South Korea, said that conditions for the deployment of the US missile defense system may require revision, “RBC” media group reported on May 10.
During his inauguration ceremony, which took place in the South Korean parliament, Moon Jae-in declared that he will do all that is possible to keep the peace on the Korean Peninsula. “If it is necessary, I will immediately fly to Washington. I will go to Beijing and Tokyo, and if possible, I am ready to visit Pyongyang,” said Moon Jae-in in his speech.
As for US-South Korean relations, Moon Jae-in promises to strengthen them by solving US THAAD missile system problem, in particular. However, if the US refuse to revise the missile deployment treaty, then the benefit from THAAD deployment will not be that obvious, the new South Korean leader believes, because deploying THAAD under the existing conditions leads to worsening relations between China and South Korea.
