Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe denounced North Korea’s third missile test in as many weeks on Monday, warning that Tokyo is prepared to join the U.S. in taking strict actions to tackle continued provocations by the reclusive state.

N. Korea on Monday test-fired a short-range Scud missile that flew about 450km before crashing into Japanese waters, notes Al Jazeera.

The launch comes just days after the G7 leaders recognized N. Korea’s expanding nuclear and missile programs as a major threat to the international community and agreed to take it as the top priority, notes Reuters.
