A Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun reported on August 10th that North Korean missiles equipped with nuclear warheads are aimed at Japan and that the entire territory of Japan is within reach of North Korea’s military operation. In response to the potential threat, the Japanese government is reportedly planning to pursue capability to preemptively strike enemy bases as its new defensive measure.
