The Ministry of National Defense announced on the 28th a plan for an additional environmental impact assessment of the THAAD missile defense system, a process expected to take at least several months.
The defense ministry said it will decide whether to fully deploy the U.S. weapon on South Korean soil after the "general” environmental survey to be held in accordance with domestic law.
Unlike the initial small scale survey, the general survey can take more than one year to complete.
Reportedly, the allies will soon begin consultations on details, including the size of the area subject to the measure under the decision by an inter-agency task force on the issue.
