U.S. allies are taking the possibility of a conflict with North Korea more seriously as its capabilities improve and the threat escalates.
Both South Korea and Japan are pursuing improved offensive and defensive abilities — from heavier warheads to improved missile defense to pre-emptive strike capabilities — to counter the North Korean threat and prepare for a potential military conflict in Northeast Asia.
President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke over the phone Friday to coordinate a response to “North Korea’s continued destabilizing and escalatory behavior,” the White House readout of the call revealed. “The two leaders agreed to strengthen our alliance through defense cooperation and to strengthen South Korea’s defense capabilities.”
Trump approved “planned purchases by South Korea of billions of dollars in American military equipment.”
