The Japanese government has begun discussing how the Self-Defense Forces would respond to a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula, government sources said, as North Korea continues its weapons program despite international condemnation.

The National Security Council will examine specific scenarios such as an inadvertent clash between North and South Korean forces, a U.S. pre-emptive strike on the North, an invasion of South Korea by the North, and a North Korean missile landing on Japanese soil, the sources said.
