China's reaction to THAAD deployment in South Korea

CHINA

Beijing’s current strategy on the Korean peninsula is plainly not working. It must lose no time in coming down hard on Seoul over the THAAD anti-missile defence system and continue to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear tests

SOUTH KOREA

Some Korean companies fear that Seoul's legal actions might irritate Beijing and backfire. This is why the Korean government should not rush into such a decision only to avoid criticism about its alleged complacency.

CHINA

The THAAD deployment will become a turning point in the Northeast Asian paradigm. When we take one step forward, we must think two steps, three steps ahead.

USA

The deployment of THAAD seems to be one of the first real moves against North Korea...The backlash from China and various dramatic moves by North Korea, however, show that the situation is complicated.

RUSSIA

Having deployed the US-operated Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on its territory, South Korea turns itself into a hostage to any potential conflict between Washington and Beijing
