U.S. addresses China threats over missile defense system

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that Monday's launches were made from the Tongchang-ri area in North Pyongan province.

However, he did not mince words in rebuking North Korea, saying that Pyongyang should suspend its nuclear weapons program.

Haley added that "all options are on the table" concerning North Korea, but said the country must engage in positive action before the USA would take it seriously. New sanctions could be slapped on North Korea as the Security Council is meeting this Wednesday.

"I think that Secretary of State Tillerson is a person who is willing to listen and is a deep communicator", Wang said at his annual news conference in Beijing on Wednesday, on the sidelines of China's parliament.

The decision to deploy THAAD in South Korea was made in July previous year. "We again strongly urge the relevant sides to stop the deployment process and not keep going down the wrong path", he added.

The alternative to China's proposal "would be escalation of tension, and the situation may get out of control", he told The Associated Press and other reporters.

"So, deploying THAAD is clearly a wrong option", he said and warned that the move would not improve South Korea's security.
