WASHINGTON - South Korea’s election of a new president favoring a more conciliatory approach toward North Korea could add volatility to relations with Washington, given his questioning of deployment of a US anti-missile system there, but is not expected to significantly change the alliance, a US official said on Tuesday.

The official said it appeared that liberal politician Moon Jae-in would still have to build a coalition despite his decisive win and he may moderate his stance on the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system once he is in office.
