中广网 Beijing on January 17 news (reporters Lin), according to Voice of China “concept of military evening peak,” reported: In recent years, some of Japan’s aviation industry to continue to promote change “three principles of arms exports,” but, recently introduced the “National Defense Program Outline”, the “three principles of arms exports,” has not been modified. In the end what is the reason to rush to modify this provision, and plans to expand the arms market in Japan did not succeed? Japan will not give up on the “three principles of arms exports,” the change? Japan for the expansion of arms exports in the end how much looking forward to?
Japan failed to modify the political struggle, “the three principles of arms exports”
Vang Pao to pay: after World War II Japan as a defeated nation is to limit military development, the 1960s, the Japanese government introduced the “three principles of arms exports”: no Communist bloc countries to sell weapons to countries not prohibited by the United Nations arms exports, not to the parties to the dispute taking place in the international China arms sales. The three principles, it should be said in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, Japan generally followed three principles, but in recent years has undergone major changes.
has been eager to expand arms exports, the Japanese government this time why there is no change to the principles of arms exports to write an outline of the new defense?
Bao-pay: This time the Japanese Parliament to discuss the so-called “three principles of arms exports,” when the defense is not included in the outline, I think it is expedient. Changes in recent years because of the recent “three principles of arms exports,” Japan to discuss very much, then why did not the text fall into the new National Defense Program Outline go? Very important reason is that for internal reasons. Now is not the ruling Democratic Party majority in the Senate, the House did not get two-thirds majority, so the next step is to discuss the Budget, the Social Democratic Party proposed to, you can cooperate with the ruling Democratic Party now, but there are two conditions: first One can not modify the three principles of arms exports; the second is about the U.S. military base in Okinawa, Futenma things.
then faced with these two conditions, Naoto Kan, the Government considers that only in the “three principles of arms exports”, the order for the government not collapse, is now being made a concession. This problem no written defense outline, but also to the future development in this direction, it is not in doubt.
Japan will not give change “three principles of arms exports”
Japanese research institute predicted that if Japan allowed a substantial export of arms, Japan will control the world ships 60% of the market, but also in the military electronics market, much to offer aerospace market. Then the face of such a large arms market, the Japanese really want to give up the modified “three principles of arms exports,” it?
Vang Pao pay: Although not included in the National Defense Program Outline, but in particular to guard against the future of Japan certainly is to modify the “three principles of arms export”, this does not change does not mean that the future does not change, it does not mean do not do. Shelved due to internal reasons for the three principles of change. Japan’s defense strategy to adjust the target is very clear that Japan’s military production capacity and research capability is very strong, including a number of sophisticated weapons the U.S. is a lot of parts made in Japan. Japanese think tank has proposed such a view: Japan’s arms exports significantly if the Japanese would control 60 percent of the world market, ships, military electronics market to 40% can be made by the Japanese aviation market is 25% -30%. Although this is an estimate, but we can see the Japanese defense industry production capacity is relatively strong. Japan In practice there are a lot of special concern, such as the procurement of weapons and equipment in Japan, you can buy the United States, Europe, weapons, production prices are lower than Japan, but Japanese do not buy, but made their own. Very important point is to protect the country’s defense industrial capacity. So from this perspective, Japan slacken modified “three principles of arms exports”, bypassing the big arm, and that weapons production will be doubled, will in the world arms market place, if the release “three principles of arms exports.” will give the world arms market a very great impact.
