TOKYO, JAPAN: 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 spokesperson, told reporters. “We can never tolerate this.”
