No planned changes to U.S. missile defense in South Korea - White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday said it was unaware of any planned changes to the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea despite recent political changes there.

"I'm not aware of any change in plan for the deployment," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a daily briefing. His comments come after the former leader of South Korea's main opposition party earlier on Thursday said deployment should be decided by its next leader.
