May 2 , 2017
As per reports, the US military mentioned that its THAAD missile system is operational in South Korea now.
Though the full operational capability is still a few months away, the anti-missile system is capable of intercepting North Korean missiles.
Last week the US announced that it will activate THAAD within days.
Reports also say that North Korea reacted furiously to the most recent military exercise, and also accused the US of taking risk of a nuclear war.
The tension rose after US President Donald Trump stated that he would be glad to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un when the circumstances are right.
