US Wants to Wrap up THAAD Talks with S. Korea

The U.S. Defense Department says it wants to wrap up talks with South Korea on the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System in the South. 

Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said Friday that the U.S. hopes to see the discussions wrapped up in an as efficient and timely fashion as possible. During a regular press briefing, he said discussions had "progressed well," but there were still "some details to work out."

Cook also said defense officials of the United States, South Korea and Japan held talks earlier on Friday to discuss the recent North Korean ballistic missile launches. He said they noted that North Korea's provocations would only strengthen the resolve of the international community.

Cook added that the three countries reiterated their strong condemnation of the North's missile launches and urged North Korea to refrain from provocations that undermine peace and security, and instead focus on fulfilling its international obligations and commitments.
