seoul - The United States Army began Wednesday's further installation of the THAAD missile defense system. At a planned location in the south of South Korea, new parts of the racket shield, which has to protect the country from North Korea, are prepared for use. The missile defense system must be fully operational by the end of this year, according to the South Korean Ministry of Defense in a statement.

The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) is scheduled to operate in part at the end of April. It now appears that there is a gap in construction and that the US pushes for the creation and activation of the shield. South Korea, according to Yonhap, had also bought two new radar for early detection of incoming ballistic missiles.

'We are working hard with the US to make it possible for THAAD to be completed in part. It is necessary to make the defense system operational earlier in response to the North Korea nuclear and rocket threats, 'reported the Ministry's statement.

North Korea has performed several rocket tests in recent months. The launches should ensure the countries around the communist North Korea. China, on the other hand, is unable to speak about the arrival of THAAD. According to Beijing, the racket shield is a threat to Chinese state security.
