North Korea today threatened to take “physical action” to counter a sophisticated US anti-missile system planned to be deployed in the South.

“The DPRK will take a physical counter-action to thoroughly control THAAD… from the moment its location and place have been confirmed in South Korea,” the artillery bureau of the North’s military said in a statement, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

North Korea’s military, which has “sufficient latest offensive strike means”, will take “more merciless and powerful successive corresponding measures against the US keen to ignite a war by deploying THAAD”, it said.

It also warned the South of “miserable self-destruction” as a consequence of the introduction of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system.

The United States and South Korea on Friday said they would deploy the missile defence system in the South but the time and venue are yet to be fixed.
