The Ministry of Defense on Dec. 15 decided to earmark about 170 billion yen in the third supplementary budget for fiscal 2016, in response to North Korea’s consecutive missile launch provocations.  It will secure a portion of funds allocated for the development of a ballistic missile defense (BMD) system in its initial budget requests for fiscal 2017 ahead of schedule for early deployment.
