Japan and the United States will jointly develop a new type of missile to intercept hypersonic projectiles being developed by countries such as North Korea, China and Russia, government sources said Monday.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and U.S. President Joe Biden are expected to agree on the plan during their bilateral talks at the Camp David retreat near Washington on Friday, according to the sources.

It will be the two nations' second joint development of an interceptor missile following the Standard Missile-3 Block 2A, the successor to SM-3 Block 1A developed solely by the U.S.
