Canada's top defense official told the parliamentary committee that the U.S. is not obliged to save Canada in the event of a ballistic missile attack.

Serious concerns over whether Canada should join the U.S. ballistic missile defence programme emerged this summer following a series of intercontinental missile tests by North Korea, including a recent missile launch from Pyongyang.

Constituting the only other member of the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command won't help Canada either, says Lt. -Gen.

St-Amand said Canadian and U.S. military personnel at the NAADC headquarters in Colorado Springs work side-by-side detecting potential airborne threats to North America. "That's the fact I can bring to the table", he said.

The Parliamentary committee held an emergency session to discuss Canada's potential membership in BMD - just as the North Koreans were preparing to fire another missile.

Since then, many Canadian defense analysts have repeated the assumption that Canada's membership in NORAD would compel the U.S.to take down an incoming missile.

But on the upside, the committee also heard North Korea views Canada as a "peaceful" and "friendly" country.

Meanwhile, Mark Gwozdecky, assistant deputy minister for worldwide security at Global Affairs Canada, said on Thursday that the Kim Jong-un regime does not have Canada in its "crosshairs", but the rogue regime does represent a significant threat to global peace.

"There's been no direct threat to Canada".

"The extent of the United States policy is not to defend Canada". The Pyongyang regime is seen as aggressive by many countries because it has been testing nuclear weapons and it has behaved aggressively against Japan and South Korea.
