NHK gave top play to a report that in light of North Korea’s repeated missiles launches using hard-to-detect mobile launch pads, the GOJ is making final arrangements to issue an ongoing order to destroy missiles fired by North Korea at any time, regardless of whether there are signs of a missile launch. This will enable the continuous deployment of Aegis vessels and PAC3 units. Other top news stories included reports on the Rio Olympics.

Major front-page items in today’s national papers included the IOC’s decision to add five sports to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, and Toyota’s projection of sluggish business performance this year as a result of the yen’s appreciation.
