Japan and the United States have agreed to create a new defense partnership to counter their perceived threat of China. Tokyo has become more assertive in its military policy under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, but this has led to protests at home.
The new pact will help to set out how Japan and the US will work together during various degrees of provocation, from peacetime, to when Tokyo may be under, or carrying out, an armed attack.
“The two governments will take measures to prevent the deterioration of Japan’s security in all phases, seamlessly, from peacetime to contingencies,” an interim report between the two countries stated, Reuters reported.
