Japan coalition adds resolution to security bills

Japan`s ruling coalition on Thursday drafted a supplementary resolution to the national security bills aimed to win over the opposition.



Tokyo: Japan`s ruling coalition on Thursday drafted a supplementary resolution to the national security bills aimed to win over the opposition.

The Liberal Democratic Party and Komeito plan to have the security bills adopted by the Upper House special committee next Wednesday. They hope to make them into law by the end of next week, NHK news agency reported.

The ruling camp will reject the opposition`s demands to amend the bills. Instead, they drafted a supplementary resolution to persuade the opposition to support them.
The draft resolution said the government will seek prior parliament`s approval in sending the Self-Defence Forces (SDF) abroad, except in very limited cases where waiting would put Japanese people`s lives at risk, or severely compromise national interests.

The draft resolution promises maximum possible transparency of SDF activities abroad, such as through regular updates during their mission.

the SDF would not transport weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, or cluster bombs and depleted uranium bombs. This is in line with Japan`s three non-nuclear principles.

The principles are not possessing, not producing, and not permitting the introduction of nuclear weapons into the country.

The secretaries general of six opposition parties have agreed to demand further deliberations on the security bills, saying a forced vote is unacceptable.

The Democratic Party will ask fellow opposition parties at their summit meeting on Friday for cooperation in submitting a motion of no-confidence.
