TOKYO, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- The ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) announced its campaign pledge for Dec. 16 House of Representatives elections at its headquarters here on Tuesday, saying the party will adopt a cool-headed and realistic diplomacy.

The DPJ's manifesto covers five major issues, including social security, economy, energy, foreign policy and political reforms.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, who is also head of the DPJ, admitted that his party failed to meet its major policies in the pledge for 2009 lower house elections, adding the manifesto this time is a realistic one based on three-year lessons as the ruling party.

In the pledge, the party said it will adopt cool-headed diplomacy by way of enhancing relations with neighboring Asian countries, adding it will participate in free trade framework in the region especially with China and South Korea.

Noda said his party will also deepen alliance with the United States. He said his party will further involve in the negotiations of the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Noda also said the DPJ will make great efforts to resolve the deadlock of abduction issue with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). The two countries have decided Tuesday to launch next round of talks over the issue on Dec. 5 and 6 in Beijing.

Noda said his party will also make efforts to achieve the goal of a nuclear-free world.
