Eight countries trained to defend against ballistic missile attacks in the US-led ‘Formidable Shield’ exercise.

NATO has revealed 14 ships, 10 aircraft, and roughly 3,300 personnel from the UK, the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands were involved in the test.

It is the first time NATO allies have practised defending against unpredictable ballistic missiles.

The exercise comes as the US ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey, confirmed the beginning of war talks to discuss a “collective response” against North Korea.

North Korea’s despotic leader Kim Jong-Un has ramped up ballistic missile testing, threatening to destroy the US and telling neighbour Japan “you will never be safe”.

Ms Bailey said that talks were in the “very early stages” to trigger Article 5 of the NATO founding treaty.

This is the founding principle of the treaty that enshrines the notion of collective defence.

Ms Bailey said: “We believe it is a common threat. If it becomes a successful possibility it will not be just America, it will be a much more problematic situation and I think that is beginning to come to the forefront.
