The US has approved a $133.3 million sale of anti-ballistic missiles to Japan to defend itself against what Washington says is a growing nuclear and missile threat from North Korea, a State Department official says.

The State Department on Tuesday notified Congress of the matter, asking it to approve the sale of the four missiles for the SM-3 Block IIA interceptor.

The official told Fox News that “also included are four Mk 29 missile canisters, and other technical, engineering and logistics support services.”
