Japan panel urges strong military amid China rise

Japan has released a near-final draft of its first national security strategy that calls for a stronger military amid the rise of China.



Tokyo: Japan has released a near-final draft of its first national security strategy that calls for a stronger military amid the rise of China.

A panel appointed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe issued the draft today, saying changes in America`s relative influence make it necessary for Japan to expand its alliances with other countries while also strengthening its long-standing ties with the US.

It raises concern about China`s rapid military expansion without any transparency.
The report, called the National Security Strategy, says Japan should ease its principles on banning arms exports as a way to step up its international peacekeeping cooperation.

The Cabinet is expected to approve the report next week along with Japan`s overall defence guidelines.
The strategy is part of Abe`s efforts to strengthen Japan`s national security.
