South Korean President Moon Jae-in has called for discussions with the United States on deploying additional THAAD anti-missile defense units, following North Korea's latest missile test.

After a National Security Council meeting in Seoul, the President's office said Moon also called on the UN Security Council to discuss new and stronger sanctions against Pyongyang.

Two units of the THAAD anti-missile system have already been deployed by the U.S. military in a southern South Korean region, with four more planned but delayed over concerns about their environmental impact.
