The Pentagon said on Wednesday it was sending an advanced ballistic missile defense system to Guam in the coming weeks, describing the move as a precaution against North Korea's regional ballistic missile threat.

The Defense Department is deploying a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD), which includes a truck-mounted launcher, interceptor missiles, a AN/TPY-2 tracking radar and an integrated fire control system.

"The United States remains vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations and stands ready to defend U.S. territory, our allies, and our national interests," a Pentagon spokeswoman said.
