SEOUL - US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he would sound out ally South Korea on efforts to grapple with North Korea's nuclear and missile programs as he arrived in Seoul on Thursday, including plans to deploy a US missile defense system there.

"I will talk to them about THAAD absolutely," Mattis told reporters shortly before landing in Seoul, referring to the plans to deploy a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea.
