North Korea has said its firing of a missile over Japan on Tuesday was "the first step" of military operations in the Pacific.

Following North Korea's recent missile launch, President Donald Trump called Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and said the "US stands with Japan 100%".
The United States has agreed to help South Korea build up its missile capabilities and "reached an agreement in principle to revise the "missile guideline".
While it is hard to predict the long-terms consequences of the launch, in the short term, it was able to drive a certain wedge between the above countries regarding their further reaction to the launch, the expert concluded.
