The United States plans to boost its missile defense system in Japan in response to the ongoing threat posed by North Korea.
In a report this week to the U.S. Senate on his agency's budget request for the fiscal year 2015, Missile Defense Agency Director Admiral James D. Syring suggested strengthening the missile defense system between the U.S. and Japan as a way to defend against North Korea's long-range missiles.
Syring said North Korea has demonstrated through flight testing a capability that threatens South Korea.
He also added that North Korea's annual provocation cycles were very concerning.
The U.S. official went on to say that an additional advanced radar system would be sent to Japan before the end of the year.
