constitution to approve a major shift in defence policy Once the decision clears parliament Japan will no longer be restricted to the use of force only in self-defence But by choosing to not revise the constitution Abe has avoided a public referendum — risky given Japan’s entrenched pacifism and the protests in Tokyo Instead what was “self-defence” is now “collective self-defence” allowing Japan to assist its allies against a common enemy but only if its own security is threatened This could translate as for instance military support for US forces under attack near Japan Or deploying Japanese forces to protect energy supplies and the sea lines of communication Japan’s neighbours especially China with whom Tokyo is embroiled in a serious territorial dispute as well as South Korea which had suffered Japanese aggression are opposing the move Beijing went so far as to call it a “re-militarisation” that will adversely affect peace In fact one reason Abe has insisted on changing Japan’s defence policy is China’s assertive maritime posture and apprehensions about Beijing’s “non-peaceful” rise The US which had imposed the pacifist constitution on Japan has welcomed the move as it expands Tokyo’s capacity for military cooperation with Washington Australia and the Philippines too support a more militarily pro-active Japan Abe’s government has clarified that Japan will not take part in multilateral wars as in Iraq The shift nevertheless allows Tokyo to cooperate with any country it has “close ties” with In one view Abe’s move is to merely make Japan a more “normal” sovereign state Japan is still debating its post-war identity but even a pacifist Japan has maintained a 250000-strong well-equipped military This change alters little on the ground for now but could bring more
