Grave Threat to Regional Peace and Security

Date: 28/10/2022 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

The regional situation today is getting worse due to Japan which is in its reckless move to become a military power in pursuit of its wild dream of reinvasion.

Recently, Japanese Defense Ministry decided to deploy a large number of attack drones under the pretext of strengthening the “defense” of Nansei Islands, and other remote islands.

According to the decision, these drones will be introduced in 2023 on an experimental basis and hundreds of them will be deployed from 2025.

The attack drones are said to crash into the “enemy’s” vehicle and warship attacking the remote islands by means of suicidal explosion.

This is obviously a grave threat to regional peace and security, and a new provocation.

As it is already known, Japan has long spread rumors about the non-existent “threats” from surrounding countries and it has left no stone unturned to remove every obstacle standing in the way of its arms build-up and to realize its wild dream of reinvasion.

Of late, it has completely turned its “self-defense forces” for “total defense” into offensive aggression forces, running counter to international orders and constitution while continuing to revise and renew the “program for defense plan” and “mid-term plan for maintaining defense capability” behind the signboard of coping with “threat to security”.

Japan’s act of introducing state-of-the-art armed equipment for preemptive strikes and dispatching frequently “self-defense forces” overseas can never be justified by the concept of “self-defense” which can never be explained or persuaded. This vividly shows that Japan’s move for military power has now reached an extremely dangerous stage.

Japan is now seeking to newly specify the possession of “capability to attack enemy base” in its “national security strategy” within this year, by masquerading it as the possession of “capability for counter attack”.

Japan is a war criminal state that occupied the Asian countries and inflicted horrible catastrophe upon humankind last century. It is now turning to the Right and becoming reactionary to such an extent that the cabinet members, with the militarist ideas piercing into the marrow, flock to Yasukuni Shrine and prostrate themselves during autumn festival. It is clear to see how the world would end up, if such a country possesses offensive weapons.

People can hardly refrain from being in for a big shock if they face the nightmare again where the blood-stained “flag of rising sun shedding rays” are flying in every part of the world.

It comes as no surprise that the international community is keeping a sharp eye on Japan’s arms build-up.

Japan, before making any rash movement, should wise up to this logic that the threat to its security increases in direct proportion to its ever more open move to become a military power.
