BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday that South Korea is making a mistake in deploying the U.S. anti-missile defense system THAAD and urged Seoul to halt the deployment

Speaking at a news conference on the sidelines of the annual meeting of China's parliament, Wang said the THAAD system undermines China's security and may make South Korea less secure.
