New Moon over South Korea may doom US THAAD anti-missile system

Mr Xi officially invited Mr Moon to visit Beijing, Mr Yoon added.

The THAAD deployment was agreed upon by Moon's predecessor, conservative leader Park Guen-hye.

"A candidate from the Saenuri Party was elected president in the south with a razor-thin margin", that dispatch read in full.

Exit polls in South Korea's presidential election show that liberal human rights lawyer Moon Jae-in expected to win today's vote.

President of Turkmenistan wished good health, happiness and wellbeing to Moon Jae-in, and progress and prosperity to the Korean people.

"We have no choice but to recognize Kim Jong Un as a counterpart, whether we put pressure and impose sanctions on North Korea or hold dialogue". "If the conditions shape up, I will go to Pyongyang", Moon said. Beijing has been upset by the installation of US missile-defense system in South Korea that was approved by Moon's conservative predecessor as a hedge against North Korea. The likely victor could be Moon Jae In of the Democratic Party. Moon visited the national cemetery where he honored the country's former presidents, independence fighters and war heroes as he began his presidential duties.

New Moon over South Korea may doom US THAAD anti-missile system

The latest missile tested by China can attack both aircraft carriers and the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile defence system deployed recently in South Korea, an official newspaper reported on Wednesday.

"It remains a concern that the left of center, left-wing party in South Korea is going to do well", the official told Reuters, asking not to be named. "But they are going to have to do some coalition building, so I am not sure he's going be able to have an unadulterated anti-alliance, anti-THAAD stance".

The White House congratulated Moon, saying it looked forward to working with him to strengthen the longstanding U.S.

Mr Moon, 64, said: "I will urgently try to solve the security crisis".

Trump wants to tighten an economic vise and has raised the possibility of military force as the North approaches the capability to threaten America with a nuclear-tipped missile. "Will he be a good alliance partner?" said Russel, diplomat in residence at the Asia Society Policy Institute. Therefore, South Korea is doing the right thing under the leadership of President Moon to position itself in a more conciliatory tone to DPRK through peaceful dialog with each other rather than warmongering.

Moon to Xi: Let's Talk
In December 2015, Tokyo and Seoul reached an agreement to "finally and irreversibly" resolve the issue of Korean comfort women. During the conversation, Trump congratulated Moon on his victory and voiced his respect for the South Korean public's choice.
