LONDON: According to Japanese media reports about Japan on January 15 will withdraw the naval oil supply in the Indian Ocean, the Chinese Navy seems intent on taking over the international action against terrorism. In fact, China is not possible for foreign military forces command ship, the logistics are not the same size, then this seems to be impossible event, the Japanese media speculation for? To this end, the Xinhua interview with National Defense University Professor Li Daguang military.
Reporter: Sea oil for the U.S. military in Japan is based on the so-called “anti-terrorism special measures law”, can briefly explain the content and role of the law?
Li Daguang: Japan in the Indian Ocean on the US-led coalition in Afghanistan, oil activities began in 2001, according to the Japanese government announced that the event will end January 15 . Japan’s “Anti-Terrorism Special Measures Law” was November 13, 2007 at Japan House of Representatives plenary session voted the new “anti-terrorism special measures bill.” The bill seeks to recover from 11 January interrupt the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force to the United States and Britain and other countries in the Indian Ocean providing fuel and logistical support ships the task activities. Therefore, we can say “anti-terrorism special measures law” is the Japanese Self-Defense Forces for the U.S. military the legal basis for marine bunkering.
Reporter: Japan ready to stop the oil supply in the Indian Ocean sea, out of what considerations? Mean that Japan and the U.S. war in Afghanistan in the differences, mean that the Japan-US alliance appears more variables?
Li Daguang: on the 15th of this month will be stopped at sea in the Indian Ocean for which oil is considered, which may have a variety of reasons. First, because the 15th of this month to expiry of the bill, which is the main reason. As the “anti-terrorism special measures law” in Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces in the Indian Ocean, the legal basis for the U.S. oil supply, the bill fails naturally can not continue to supply the sea in the Indian Ocean.
Second, the ruling Democratic Party has always been against the “anti-terrorism special measures law”. In 2007, around the “anti-terrorism special measures law” through the process, led by the then opposition Democratic Party strongly oppose the “anti-terrorism special measures law.” The term was Democratic Party Secretary General Yukio Hatoyama, after a press conference in Parliament, said, “not in favor of the United States to provide support for the center of the war bill. Vote on bills because of Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda visited the United States must be brought ‘ gift ‘. ” To block the new “anti-terrorism special measures law” in the Senate deliberations, the opposition side has made adequate preparations. Therefore, the new Japanese Prime Minister Hatoyama’s leadership on democracy, social people and People’s New Party was established three-party coalition government in 2009 had already determined to provide the Indian Ocean offshore oil-related bills in January 2010 after the expiry of the period no longer be postponed.
Whether it means that Japan and the United States are divided on the war in Afghanistan, which currently can not see it. Does that mean that Japan-US alliance more problems, can not say, but more or less likely to have some impact. Recent issues surrounding the relocation of Futenma base continued US-Japanese discord, the two cracks in the alliance. US-Japan alliance established 50 years ago, the U.S. has a “protector” of itself, lead to some Japanese people’s dissatisfaction. But the Liberal Democratic Party during the administration of pursuing a “pro-American” policy, the United States has been in-Japanese conflict and friction can be controlled and coordinated range. Democratic Party came to power, proposed to establish a “reciprocal” of the US-Japan alliance, and the implementation of specific policies in practice, the potential long US-Japan conflicts and friction surface. These are the Japanese in the Indian Ocean for the impact on U.S. oil supply.
Thus, while Japan’s defense who Yukio Hatoyama criticized the Government’s determination to withdraw Self-Defense Force supply ship approach that in the Japan-US alliance relationship problems because of Futenma Air Station, the case of cracks, which not only make Japan needs to rely on other countries’ security forces to protect their ships, Japan and the U.S. are more likely to share terrorism intelligence capability has been greatly diminished.
Reporter: Japan’s “Sankei Shimbun” 11 exclusive broke the news that the Japanese will be 15 to withdraw supply of the Maritime Self Defense Force in the Indian Ocean, the Chinese Navy seems intent took over the international action against terrorism. In fact, China can not ship by the U.S. military command, logistics specifications are not the same, then the Japanese media hype this purpose?
Li Daguang: in Japan ready to stop oil supply to the U.S. military in the Indian Ocean when the Japanese suddenly broke the news media seems interested in the Chinese Navy took over the international action against terrorism. Ironically, even we have not thought about this Chinese, Japanese media on the arrangements for us, and really very thoughtful. In fact, there is no reason China and obligations in the Indian Ocean for the U.S. oil supply. Japanese media speculation at this time, this issue is nothing less than the following purposes: First, there is worry that Japan lost the Indian Ocean sea. Since Japan imports 90 percent of crude oil from the Middle East, once the Japanese evacuation of the Indian Ocean, Japan will lose the sense of the existence of maritime transport line, so Tokyo is wary of this, the use of “Chinese naval activities into the Indian Ocean region,” the topic to create atmosphere.
Second diplomatic test. Japan broke the news media suddenly did not matter, may be a speculative strategy. Did not broke things through, to see China’s reaction. Japan apparently “worried”, once China took over the oil into the Indian Ocean, Japan is not only to defend their vessels must be entrusted the task of securing his country, and to obtain intelligence related to terrorist activity will be significantly limited.
Reporter: Gulf of Aden region’s offshore energy related to the Japanese lines, from this perspective, despite the claim that Japan will stop fuel supply, will remain in the region to maintain a certain sea ??power?
Li Daguang: on the sub-Ding Wanhai convoy on the issue, which is the Indian Ocean sea oil are two different things. Gulf of Aden to escort the United Nations under the auspices of a multinational operation, U.S. and Japan to stop oil supply in the Indian Ocean is Japan the country’s own individual behavior, and the United Nations-led international action can not be compared. Therefore, even if Japan stopped the oil supply for the U.S. military in the Indian Ocean, but this does not affect the deployment of Japanese ships in the Gulf of Aden on the behavior.
