South Korea is moving swiftly to install four new Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) rocket launchers on its territory.
The anti-missile defence systems are meant to protect South Korea from an attack from North Korea.
On Aug. 30, a day after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan, the US military joined South Korea and Japan in a spectacular show of force against the Hermit Kingdom. Japan on the other hand has supported the plans, saying it will contribute to peace and stability.
The NATO military alliance is calling for global pressure to be ratcheted up against North Korea following its latest nuclear test.
The 10-hour show of force mission, which was overseen by U.S. Pacific Command, involved two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers out of Guam, four U.S. Marine F-35Bs, two F-15Js, and four South Korean F-15Ks.
The leaders of Russian Federation and South Korea have condemned North Korea over its latest nuclear test, but still appear far apart on the issue of stepping up sanctions against Pyongyang.
Beijing opposed the us missile defense system in South Korea and called it a "stab wound". "THAAD is a missile defense system for the theater of operations".
Putin made the remarks Wednesday after meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Vladivostok, Russia. The nation's state newspaper Rodong Sinmunpublished images on Sunday of Kim allegedly inspecting a nuclear warhead and claimed the bomb tested was a hydrogen fusion weapon-if so, a significant improvement in the nation's nuclear program. He told reporters before his departure from Japan that "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".
