China Reiterates Opposition to THAAD Ahead of Tillerson's Visit

China's Foreign Ministry reiterated its opposition Friday to the deployment of THAAD missile defense in South Korea.

Spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters in Beijing concerned parties should understand China's reasonable concern and immediately stop the deployment process. 

Beijing rejects assurances from South Korea and the U.S. that the missile shield is only aimed at defending against North Korea's nuclear and missile threat.

The issue is expected to resurface at foreign minister level talks when U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives in China on Saturday.
