The first announced deal was that South Korea will temporarily allow the USA to deploy four additional THAAD missile defense systems in the country.

The Defence ministry said in a statement that some construction would be carried out to deploy the four launchers at the site in Seongju, south of Seoul. Components of the Thaad battery arrived at the US military's Osan Air Base on March 7, 2017 and a radar system and two launchers were installed on a former golf course in Seongju on April 26 - less than two weeks before the May 9 presidential election that brought Moon Jae-in to power.

They have raised worries over rumored health hazards linked to the system's powerful radar and the possibility that the town will become a target of North Korean attacks.

THAAD will not help resolve security concerns.
