Defense Minister Feng Shih-kuan (馮世寬) on Thursday reiterated Taiwan’s stance
against installing the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).
During a session at the Legislative Yuan’s Foreign Affairs and National Defense committee, legislators asked Feng whether Taiwan would host the U.S. anti-ballistic missile system THAAD.
In his response, Feng said that Taiwan “should not be involved in other nations’ war or make pointless sacrifices in conflicts between two global powers.”
He rejected the idea of a THAAD installation, saying that Taiwan’s military fights to protect the nation and its sovereignty.” [FULL STORY]
