US, Japanese Defense Leaders Condemn North Korean Nuke Test

U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue strongly opposed the withdrawal of the KORUS FTA in a statement issued on September 5

Additional launchers for a controversial American antimissile system will be installed Thursday in Seongju County, North Gyeongsang, the Ministry of National Defense said Wednesday.

Four more THAAD anti-ballistic missile launchers will be installed this week at a United States military base in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, citing South Korea's defence ministry.

However, at a news conference in China, Mr Putin stopped short of expressing support for more United Nations sanctions on North Korea, and said Russian Federation viewed them as "useless and ineffective". Japan on the other hand has supported the plans, saying it will contribute to peace and stability.

The deployment decision was made by President Moon Jae-in in the face of growing tension sparked by North Korea, which conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sunday.

FSU's Deondre Francois suffers late leg injury vs Alabama; severity unknown
When Tide running backs Bo Scarbrough and Damien Harris tried to run up the middle, there was practically nowhere for them to go. With the impressive victory Alabama is certain to maintain its hold at the No. 1 ranking, and it hosts Fresno State next week.

The ministry noted that six launchers will give the USA a full THAAD battery, meaning it will have a much better chance of detecting and shooting down missiles from the North.

Local residents have protested the THAAD deployment for fear that their town may turn into a primary target for North Korean attacks.

Trump is to speak Wednesday with China's president. Some residents were reportedly injured, but no further details have been provided.

The NATO military alliance is calling for global pressure to be ratcheted up against North Korea following its latest nuclear test.

Xiaomi says that the upcoming device will be from a new series
All these speculations do indicate Xiaomi Android One phone reveal tomorrow, but that's all it is right now - speculations. The device sports 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display , while it packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage .

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

The deployment would follow a spate of recent North Korean ballistic missile and nuclear tests, and increasingly heated rhetoric between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump.

"One shouldn't give in to emotions and drive North Korea into a corner", he continued, adding that all parties need to show composure and avoid "steps that lead to an escalation of tension".

However, the plan - which China has also urged all parties to "seriously consider" - was previously rejected by Washington, with State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert stating last month that the U.S. is "allowed" to conduct exercises with its ally and "that's just not going to change".
