SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea threatened on Monday an unspecified “physical counteraction” once the United States and South Korea decided upon a site in the South where an advanced American missile defense system will be deployed.
The warning from the North Korean military, carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency, was its first reaction since South Korea and the United States announced an agreement on Friday to deploy the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, or Thaad, system in the South.
