(VOVworld) – South Korea has finished approval procedures to provide land for the US Terminal-High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missile system under its forces hosting agreement with the US, the South Korean Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
Lotte Skyhill Country Club golf course in Seongju is chosen for THAAD on March 18.
South Korea had chosen Seongju County’s Lotte Skyhill Country Club golf course, previously owned by the Lotte Group, for the land needed to deploy THAAD earlier this year. The site is 300,000 square meter southeast of the capital Seoul. In February, the South Korean Defense Ministry said environmental impact assessments of the deployment were being processed. Lotte Group agreed to a land swap deal the same month.
