Trump requests over $5bln extra defense spending for North Korea, Afghanistan”

Trump, who is on an extended tour of Asia, made the request in a letter to Congress, saying the additional money, is urgently needed.

The American leader wants to increase defense spending in connection with the threat from North Korea and increasing troops in Afghanistan.

Trump said on Monday that the United States stood in solidarity with Japan on North Korea and called North Korea's ballistic missile launches over Japan "a threat to the civilized world and to global peace and stability".

"The funding would go toward construction of an additional interceptor field in Alaska and provide initial funding to buy 20 new interceptors for the system, " The Hill reported. "The request includes an additional $4.0 billion to support urgent missile defeat and defense enhancements to counter the threat from North Korea, $0.7 billion to fix damage to US Navy ships, and $1.2 billion in support of my Administration's South Asia strategy".

In addition, the President wants to allocate $ 700 million for fix of U.S. Navy ships John McCain and Fitzgerald, who in 2017 faced civil courts.

The sanctions, mentioned by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a joint news conference with U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday, will freeze the assets of nine organizations and 26 individuals, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference.

It described the funds as a down payment on what the Department of Homeland Security needs to secure the border.
