Japan deployed on Tuesday an additional missile defence system on its northern island of Hokkaido, days after North Korea launched a missile over the island, sparking emergency warnings to take cover.

South Korea's presidential office spokesman Park Soo-hyun said on Sunday that Moon and Trump had in a Sunday telephone conversation strongly condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea and agreed to work with the worldwide community to implement the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)'s latest resolution against Pyongyang.

Pyongyang says it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself from the U.S.
. He previously said the idea should be "deeply considered" by the allies, inflaming already-heated debate on the issue.

The U.S. military said on Monday it had staged bombing drills with South Korea, flying a pair of B-1B bombers and F-35 fighter jets over the Korean peninsula, in a show of force against North Korea.

South Korea's Ministry of National Defense revealed the plan in a report submitted to the National Assembly on September 18 in light of North Korea's missile and nuclear provocations.

American officials also do not have high confidence that the military could find and destroy North Korea's entire arsenal of long-range missiles and nuclear warheads.

However, Moon has taken a tougher stance against the neighbor to the north since Pyongyang's recent provocations.

In August, North Korea conducted an underground nuclear explosion that the North claimed to have been a hydrogen bomb.

As tensions continue to ratchet up with North Korea, CNN has learned that the United States is considering shooting down a North Korean ballistic missile even if it does not directly threaten the USA or its allies.

"The bottom line is: The missiles, were they to be a threat - whether it be to USA territory, Guam, [or] obviously Japan's territory - that would elicit a different response from us", he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"President Moon asked for active support and cooperation of Czech, a powerhouse of winter sports, and expressed hope many Czech people will visit South Korea for the Winter Olympic Games", Seoul's presidential office, Cheong Wa Dae, said in a press release. There has been particular concern since Kim Jong Un recently threatened the United States territory of Guam. "We've communicated that well enough to the North Koreans".

North Korea "must immediately cease making reckless choices that could lead to its own isolation and downfall and choose the path of dialogue", Moon said.
