THE United States, Japan and South Korea are to hold missile tracking drills over two days from Monday, as tensions continue to escalate in the region with North Korea continuing its missile and nuclear weapons programmes.

The latest exercise follows on from last week’s large scale military drills, which prompted North Korea to comment the outbreak of war was “an established fact”.

North Korea has filed a number of missiles over Japan as it continues to develop both ballistic and nuclear weapons despite UN sanctions and worldwide condemnation.

On November 29, it test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile which it said was its most advanced yet, capable of reaching the mainland United States.

This week’s exercises will be the sixth drills sharing information in tracking ballistic missiles among the three nations, the Japanese defence force said.

It did not say whether the controversial THAAD system would be involved.

The installation of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in South Korea has angered China, which fears its powerful radar could look deep into China and threaten its own security.

North Korea’s missile test last month prompted a US warning that North Korea’s leadership would be “utterly destroyed” if war were to break out.

The Pentagon has mounted repeated shows of force after North Korean tests.
