A senior Chinese official has reiterated Beijing’s opposition to a US deployment of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system to South Korea.
"We urge the parties concerned to stop immediately the deployment of THAAD and not to go too far down the erroneous road,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said at a regular news briefing in the capital, Beijing, on Thursday.
He expressed hope that China and South Korea would “seek a proper solution that will take into account the concerns of both sides through communication and consultation.”
The spokesman made the remarks following a meeting between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and a delegation of the Minjoo Party of South Korea on Wednesday to talks about THAAD deployment.
