The Japanese government said Thursday it "can never tolerate" provocations from North Korea after the country's military said it was finalising a plan to launch missiles towards Guam that would fly over Japan. 

"North Korea's provocative actions, including this time, are obviously provocative to the region including Japan as well as to the security of the international community," Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief government spokesman, told reporters. "We can never tolerate this."

"We strongly urge North Korea to take seriously the strong warnings and censures that have repeatedly been made and abide by a series of UN resolutions and refrain from taking further provocative action."  DM
