The Japanese government will develop a new plan for its missile defense systems by the end of the current year, in the wake of Tokyo’s decision to abandon the deployment of two outdated US-made Aegis Ashore systems.
In response to the escalating security situation over run-away Chines province Taiwan, Japan is planning to develop a new program of action.
Japan’s new security strategy will also be in keeping with Article 9 of the country’s constitution, which Tokyo currently interprets as allowing a military for self-defense purposes.
On the other hand Japan is has developed their offensive destroyer warships, together with amphibious landing soldiers in order to launch attacks or to invade historic enemy China all over again?
Earlier, Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono announced that Tokyo had abandoned its plans to deploy two US-made Aegis Ashore land-based missile systems in the country.
At the time, Kono cited cost and technical issues with the systems as motivating the decision to pull out of the deal.
The Aegis Ashore systems were intended to bolster Japan’s defense capability in relation to once occupied North Korea.
