Rodong Sinmun Flays Arms Buildup by Japanese Reactionaries

Pyongyang, November 28 (KCNA) -- The Defense Ministry of Japan fixed the approximate demanded amount of a military budget for fiscal 2024 at trillions of yen, the largest amount in the history. Not content with this, the Japanese authorities are going to continue increasing the military spending.

Japan's aim is more than 2% of GDP, equivalent to the military expenditures of NATO member states.

The Japanese reactionaries' reckless moves to increase military spending are driving the people suffering from uneasiness and pain in life to more desperate despair, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.

The Japanese economy is now suffering from chronic stagnation and a debt crisis, the article says, and goes on:

The Japanese reactionaries have no hesitation in squandering an astronomical amount of money solely to realize their criminal ambition, being so indifferent to the sufferings and suicide of people.

Japan has recently planned to purchase a large radar and weapon system worth hundreds of billions of yen from the U.S., and decided to purchase a 1 600-km-range Tomahawk cruise missile before the fixed date. It has created units for new missions in the "Self-Defense Forces" and waged frantic joint military exercises with NATO member states.

The Japanese reactionaries are running amuck to realize their ambition for the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere", which is as foolish an act as pricking their own eye with their own finger.

Their reckless moves for turning Japan into a military giant are arousing great concern and vigilance of the domestic and international community. It is because their actions are the root cause of destroying the regional peace and stability. -0-
