"North Korea is working on boosting capabilities and variety of its weapons. We must introduce such a missile defence system that could respond to all types of challenges", Iwaya said, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Japanese Defence Minister Takeshi Iwaya said on Friday that Tokyo should boost its national missile defence system after North Korea launched another two missiles earlier this week.

On Wednesday, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles that flew 250 kilometres (155 miles) toward the Sea of Japan. North Korea’s state-run KCNA news agency has reported that Pyongyang test-fired a new large-calibre multiple-launch guided rocket system under the supervision of the country's leader, Kim Jong-un.
