Japanese Panel Urges Greater Military Role

“Citing threats from China and North Korea, a government-appointed panel is urging Japan to reinterpret its pacifist constitution to allow the use of military force to defend other countries. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe formally received the panel’s report Thursday and vowed to seek ways to allow the military to do more for the country’s own defense and for international peace. ‘We must study if the current interpretation of the constitution is sufficient in order to protect the people and their peaceful lives,’ Abe said.”
