- Published on Apr 6, 2014
The US is going to deploy two more ballistic missile system destroyers to Japan by 2017 in a move expected to spark anger from North Korea.
US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the decision in a press conference in Tokyo. Hagel has traveled to Japan to address what he calls threats posed by Pyongyang. Hagel added that the ships will provide the U-S and its allies more protection from those threats. The two additional ships would bring the total number of U-S ballistic missile system warships in the region to seven. Meanwhile, North Korea has accused Washington of being provocative and seeking regime change and warned that it will take countermeasures.
