White House Official Discusses THAAD with S. Korean Officials

A White House official visiting South Korea says that he discussed the deployment of U.S. THAAD antimissile system during his visit to the presidential office and the Foreign Ministry.

Matt Pottinger, senior director for East Asia at the National Security Council, met with Deputy Foreign Minister Lee Jeong-kyu Tuesday in Seoul.

The U.S. official added that the THAAD deployment is an issue that has already been settled, expressing hope that the two allies will continue talks on the matter.

Regarding the possibility of talks between the U.S. and North Korea, Pottinger said that Seoul and Washington have confirmed that the North’s provocation poses a threat to regional stability and dialogue with Pyongyang is possible only under the right conditions.
