JAPAN is bracing itself for booming numbers of refugees from North and South Korea if tensions between Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump spill over into all-out World War 3.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his government was making contingency plans in the event of a humanitarian crisis, should the US respond to North Korea’s refusal to abandon its nuclear missile programme.

Mr Shinzo also urged North Korea to comply with UN resolutions to refrain from provoking the US into further military action.

North Korea launched a ballistic missile on Sunday but it blew up almost immediately, the U.S. Pacific Command said.

Today, US Vice President Mike Pence visited the demilitarised border between North and South Korea and repeated that the US era of “strategic patience” with Pyongyang was over.

However, Kim Jong-un has refused to back down, despite edging towards all-out war with the US.

The North Korean leader has promised to carry out another nuclear test by next week.

Should war break out, Japan is expecting a huge influx of asylum seekers fleeing the region.

Mr Abe told parliament he was considering the Japanese response to a potential crisis, including floods of refugees and how to evacuate Japanese citizens from South Korea.
