Japan is preparing to intercept a North Korean missile (defense)

The Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera ordered the country's armed forces to prepare for the interception of a North Korean missile and its debris if they pose a danger to the security of Japan, announced the Kyodo referring to government sources. 

To monitor the possible firing of a North Korean missile, Japan plans to deploy buildings with the Aegis missile defense system.

Referring to the intelligence services, the South Korean media reported during the week that Pyongyang had deployed two ballistic missiles Musudan kind on its eastern coast. The range of this missile is estimated at between 3,000 and 4,000 km.

The Korean peninsula is experiencing an increase in tension in recent weeks. In early March, Pyongyang, in protest against the joint exercises between South Korea and the United States, has canceled all non-aggression agreements and denuclearization agreements with Seoul and announced the cancellation of the armistice at the end of the Korean War (1950-1953).

Pyongyang has also promised that he would act "under the laws of war" in the event of hostile actions that might lead to a "major war" or even a "nuclear war."
