The governor of a South Korean province, where Seoul and Washington agreed to house one Terminal High Altitude Area Defense battery by the end of next year, has asked the central government to find an alternative site for the US missile defense system.

Kim Kwan-yong, governor of North Gyeongsang province which includes Seongju county, some 250 kilometers southeast of Seoul, said on Tuesday that the government should acknowledge the fact that no solution can be found if it adheres only to the already designated site.

Kim was quoted by Yonhap news agency as saying that both the government and Seongju residents should make efforts to find an alternative site for the US missile shield based on the agreement from residents.
