News Story: DPRK slams South Korea's decision to deploy additional THAAD launch pads

PYONGYANG, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Sunday slammed South Korea's decision to deploy four additional launch pads of the Terminal High Altitude Areas Defense (THAAD) system under alleged threat from DPRK missiles.

The official daily Rodong Sinmum said the decision, made by South Korean Ministry of Defense recently, is "an unpardonable act against the nation aimed at unconditionally accepting the demand of its U.S. master even at the sacrifice of the destiny and interests of the South Korean people."

"From the outset, the South Korean ruling forces have had no intention to roll back the plan for deploying THAAD," it said.

"On the contrary, they have borne an ill will to do harm to the fellow countrymen through tightened 'alliance' with the United States by deploying THAAD," it said.
