S. Korea Mulls Measures to Counter China's THAAD Retaliation

South Korea is mulling measures to counter China’s recent moves that appear to be its retaliation to Seoul’s decision to deploy a U.S. THAAD antimissile system on the Korean Peninsula.

Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se said Monday that there will be an appropriate, necessary response to Beijing's move. This is the first time the South Korean foreign minister has announced countermeasures against China's perceived retaliation for Seoul's planned deployment of the THAAD missile interceptors. His remarks are also seen as a strong warning against China. 

A government official said earlier related ministries and agencies are reviewing various possible measures regarding China's actions.

China is taking what appears to be retaliatory measures although it is denying it. 

Beijing recently banned South Korean stars from appearing on its TV shows and rejected a request by airline companies to operate chartered planes bound for South Korea. It has also reportedly decided not to provide state subsidies to cars equipped with Korean-made batteries.
