SEOUL, June 9 (Yonhap) -- South Korea has no plan for changes to its agreement with the United States that will fundamentally change the ongoing deployment of the THAAD missile defense system here, a senior security advisor to South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Friday.

"Our government plans to deal with the THAAD deployment with a few principles while being fully aware of North Korea's nuclear and missile threats," Chung Eui-yong, the head of the presidential National Security Office, told reporters.

"First of all, the government has no intention to fundamentally change what it has promised under the Korea-U.S. alliance," he added.
