"There is no change in the government's position to make the final decision on whether the THAAD system will be deployed (in South Korea) after carrying out the general environmental impact assessment of the entire site thoroughly and fairly", a defense ministry statement read. The camp already has two operational launchers. Meanwhile, hundreds of local residents and activists are gathered near the US base protesting the 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 USA mainland.

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.

Soon after Pyongyang launched another long-range missile July 28, South Korea President Moon Jae-in ordered the temporary deployment of additional THAAD launchers. In today's edition of Rodong Sinmun, a column titled "Reckless Sabre-rattling Precipitating Self-Destruction" threatens to "put a definite end to the USA imperialists and south Korean puppet forces' moves to ignite a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula". "But as I said, we have many options to do so".

China and Russian Federation have repeatedly opposed the project, saying that it is a way for the U.S.to further establish its military presence in the broader region, and will only escalate tensions into unsafe territory.

"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.

"China is seriously concerned", foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular news briefing yesterday, reiterating China's opposition to the deployment of THAAD by the United States and South Korea.

North Korea says it detonated a hydrogen bomb in its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.
