S. Korean Ambassador to US Frustrated with China's THAAD Claims

South Korea’s Ambassador to the U.S. Ahn Ho-young has denounced China’s protest and retaliatory measures against the deployment of the THAAD antimissile system on the Korean Peninsula.
During a seminar organized by the Washington International Trade Association in the U.S. capital on Monday, Ahn said unless China is seriously considering attacking South Korea with missiles, he cannot see how THAAD could harm China’s key security interests.
Ahn said that as a defense system, THAAD provides protection to a very limited altitude of between 50 and 150 kilometers.
The ambassador said China claims that THAAD undermines its key security interests but has stopped short of providing an explanation on how. Ahn said he feels frustrated every time he hears such claims.
He also said that in all of China’s retaliatory actions and words aimed at South Korea, there is no trace of observing the law or regulations. Ahn said that a large and major trading country such as China must abide by the law.
Ahn said he hopes that China’s leadership will promptly come to understand that such action is of no help.
