S. Korean Military Authorities Flailed for Joining in U.S. MD
Pyongyang, July 23 (KCNA) -- The south Korean internet newspaper Voice of People on Tuesday carried an editorial denouncing the south Korean military authorities for mulling joining in the U.S. missile defense system.

The U.S. has long tried to round off the global missile defense system by drawing south Korea into MD, the editorial said, and went on:

South Korea's joining in MD will spark off great rebuke from its surrounding countries and that's why the preceding regimes did not dare join in MD.

Entering this year, the U.S. is going to deploy THAAD in south Korea, and the south Korean military authorities are moving to join in MD.

The military authorities are not refusing the introduction of THAAD while pretending to deny the joining in MD.

The editorial urged the "president" to clarify her stand on the deployment of THAAD in south Korea.
