Seoul and Washington have started talks on extending the range of South Korea’s missiles to help deter North Korea, news reports said Wednesday.

The allies have been in negotiations since late last year to revise a defence accord which imposes a maximum range of 300 kilometres (187 miles) on such missiles, Yonhap news agency and the Chosun Ilbo newspaper said.

“The two countries share the view that the range of our missiles should be extended,” Yonhap quoted a government source as saying. “It’s necessary to extend the range to 1,000 km or longer.”

A defence ministry spokesman declined to comment.

Following a North Korean rocket launch in April 2009, the then-South Korean Prime Minister Han Seung-Soo told parliament the bilateral missile accord should be amended to extend the agreed maximum range.
