Descendants of ‘imperial Japanese army’ should not act rashly: KCNA commentary

Date: 09/12/2023 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

Japan's military hysteria that has disturbed peace of the regional society all year round is going on even in the year end.

It was reported that Japan recently made arrangements with Germany to conclude agreements on mutual provision of goods and manpower.

This allowed Japan to expand the scope of the agreements again as it had already concluded such agreements with six countries including the US, the UK, Australia, France and Canada.

What should not be overlooked is that the agreements on mutual provision of goods and manpower, which enable the signatory nations to freely support each other in terms of foodstuffs, fuel, ammunition and other goods and manpower, provide Japan, a war criminal state which had accepted the exercise of the "right to collective self-defense", with a lever to further facilitate overseas military advance beyond the scope of "exclusive defense".

Japan is staging military drills under various pretexts by bringing all countries which concluded the agreements with it into the archipelago and its vicinity.

As everyone knows, Japan, which was disarmed after its defeat, is not entitled to have army, far from the rights to belligerency, participation in a war.

But today, it is Japan that frantically resorts to reckless expansion of military muscle and overseas military advance by turning itself into one of the most dangerous aggression forces.

It is needless to say that such moves of Japan, which does not conceal even a bit its attempt at overseas reinvasion while justifying the past aggression war crimes in particular, would bring huge disasters to mankind.

After taking the road of overseas aggression with the backing of big powers, Japan joined aggressive blocs in the region while vociferating "free and open Indo-Pacific" by aligning itself with the US’ hegemony-seeking policy.

Japan is talking about the possession of "ability for attacking enemy base" after deploying armed forces in places favourable for the aggression of the continent while crying out for the "defense of far-off solitary islands" and "recapturing islands".

The facts suggest that Japan's moves for signing the agreements on mutual provision of goods and manpower are aimed at attaining its ambition for reinvasion easily by further intensifying overseas military advance.

In the current negotiation for signing the agreement with Germany, Japan stated that it would promote military cooperation with the former by keeping the DPRK and China in mind.

It is an evil intention of Japan to drive the regional situation to an extreme phase in collusion with forces following the US’ hegemony-seeking strategy and, at the same time, to run without restriction to realize the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" by building up public opinion that Japan's territory is under the "greatest threat".

But Japan is mistaken.

The victimized countries which were subjected to bitter pains and sufferings in the past by the Japanese militarists are sharply watching Japan's shameless military acts.

The descendants of the "imperial Japanese army" should not act rashly, clearly knowing the bitter resentment of the Asian people and the international community.
