Japan to track N Korea missiles with S Korea, US
Japan and South Korea are set to agree early next month to link their radars via a US system to share real-time information on North Korea’s ballistic missiles, a person with knowledge of the matter says.
Defence ministers from Japan, South Korea and the United States plan to reach an agreement on the sidelines of an Asian defence summit to be held in Singapore early next month, said the person, who declined to be identified because the discussions are not public.
The Japanese government’s top spokesperson, Hirokazu Matsuno, said no decision has been made yet on the planned agreement, without elaborating.
South Korea’s presidential office said the country would form a group with Japan and the United States to share information about North Korea’s missiles, news agency Yonhap reported.
