The North Korea missile crisis has sparked calls for Seoul to build its own nuclear weapons to defend itself, it has emerged.

Media and conservative politicians in South Korea have asked for a ‘nuclear balance’ on the peninsula amid escalating tensions between Pyongyang and America.

Calls to beef up the military capabilities of the country come as Washington and Seoul confirmed plans to carry out massive wargames later this month.

Military officials plan to move ahead with the training later this month that North Korea, now finalising plans to launch a salvo of missiles toward Guam, claims are a rehearsal for war.

The exercises are an annual event, but come as Pyongyang says it is readying a plan to fire off four ‘Hwasong-12’ missiles toward the U.S. island territory and major military hub. The plan would be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for approval just before or as the U.S.-South Korea exercises begin.

Called Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, the exercises are expected to run from August 21-31 and involve tens of thousands of American and South Korean troops on the ground and in the sea and air.
