Japan deems North Korean threat ‘more serious than ever’

North Korea’s threat to Japan is “worse than ever”worries Tokyo in its latest “White Book” on defense published Friday July 28, which evokes the presumed capacities of Pyongyang to launch nuclear missiles.

The Japanese Defense Ministry’s annual report, listing the country’s most pressing military threats and ways to ensure its stability, highlights the importance of the recent significant increase in its defense budget as the world enters what he calls “a new era of crisis”.

While the document is largely devoted to China’s growing military power and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Pyongyang also appears as a major concern for Japan. “It is assumed that North Korea has the capability to attack Japan with nuclear weapons mounted on ballistic missiles,” adds this report.
