CBS News reports that “Chinese state media say Beijing and Moscow have agreed to take ‘further countermeasures’ in response to plans for an advanced U.S. missile defense system in South Korea.”

“The Xinhua News Agency says the agreement was reached during security talks between the two countries in Moscow on Thursday.”

“The report gave no details and a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday said only that China has a legitimate right to defend its security interests. The proposed Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, radar system aims to guard against North Korean missiles.”
