PYONGYANG, July 11 (Xinhua) -- The military of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) issued a warning Monday that it would take "physical measures" to cope with U.S. deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) in South Korea.

The physical counter-measures will be taken the moment the location and place of the THAAD deployment are chosen, said the DPRK.

The warning was issued by the Artillery Bureau of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army and carried by the official KCNA news agency.

The joint decision by the United States and South Korea to deploy the THAAD in U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) stationed on the Korean Peninsula is a direct product of U.S. ambition to dominate the world and South Korea's confrontation moves with the fellow countrymen in the north in a bid to invade the DPRK, it said.
