US: Missile defense for NKorea threat, not China

Published: 08.24.12, 08:21 / Israel News

The United States is in discussions with close ally Japan about expanding a missile defense system in Asia, the top US general said Thursday.


Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was commenting on a Wall Street Journal report that the US is discussing positioning an early warning radar in southern Japan, supplementing one already in place in the country's north, to contain threats from North Korea and to counter China's military.
