Cold War mindset haunts Japanese defense paper

(People's Daily Online)

16:01, August 01, 2012

In past years, Japan’s defense white paper kept blasting China’s military buildup as regional threat. This year appears no difference. The country’s Ministry of Defense on Tuesday released its annual Defense of Japan report, expressing concern over Chinese naval vessels' activities in the Pacific Ocean.

The report noted that China is likely to expand its sphere of maritime activities, and conduct operations and training as routine practices in waters near Japan including the East China Sea, the Pacific Ocean, and the South China Sea, which Tokyo is increasingly worried about.

Japan’s accusation over China’s military development is unfair. The fact is Japan is taking dangerous steps that escalate regional tension, like the plan of “buying up Diaoyu Islands”, deliberately strengthening military alliance with relevant countries and intensifying the joint war games.

China unswervingly adopts the defensive national defense policy and will as always pursue the peaceful development.
