BEIJING: The United States and South Korea are destined to "pay the price" for their decision to deploy an advanced missile defence system which will inevitably prompt a "counter attack", China's top newspaper said on Saturday.
Tension on the Korean peninsula has been high this year, beginning with North Korea's fourth nuclear test in January, which was followed by a satellite launch, a string of tests of various missiles, and its fifth and largest nuclear test last month.
In July, South Korea agreed with the United States to deploy the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system to protect against any North Korean threats.
South Korea aims to deploy the system on a golf course, a defence ministry official said on Friday.
But the plan has angered China, which worries that THAAD's powerful radar would compromise its security and do nothing to lower temperatures on the Korean peninsula.

Chinese are self obsessed. Thad is going to compromise Chinese security. Japan will now have advantage over China
China is building castles in the air and thinking of flexing it''s muscle with a combine of outdated Soviet weapons and low grade, cheap Chinese ones. Laughable, that the Chinese believe they can teach America a lesson. Chinese media is as deluded as the Pakistani media.
China and Pakistan are a BIG THREAT TO ENTIRE WORLD NOW!
South korea should also go for surgical strike to finish kim North korean leader than China will understand their correct position in the world
On face chinese may be condeming North Korea but in reality they are hand in glove with them as they are supplying nuclear materials to them by defying NPT
china will not compramise its own interest at any cost. hence they support rogue nations like pak and north korea.
Why cant china rein in N Korea . That is the problem . They are using N Korea to destabilize S Korea and Japan and use Pakistan to destabilize India . This wont work in the long run . China is far more irresponsible than even Russia
China will be getting S-400 from Russia, then scene could be different in SCS
china supports every terrorist country
