Japan urged to act wisely after enacting security bills

Beijing, Sep 19 (IANS) China has urged Japan to act prudently after parliament’s upper house on Saturday enacted a controversial security law pushed forward by the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“We seriously urge Japan to learn lessons from history and listen to the appeal of its people and the international community, and pay attention to security concerns of its neighbours,” Xinhua quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei as saying on Saturday.

Under the newly enacted legislation, Japan will create a permanent law to allow its self-defence forces to carry out logistical support missions for foreign militaries in international peacekeeping operations, and other 10 existing security-related laws will be revised.

“It marks an unprecedented move that Japan has taken in the military and security fields after the Second World War,” Hong said.

Japan has recently enhanced its military forces and adjusted its military and security policies, which conflicted with the trend of peace, development and cooperation.

It also raised doubts on whether the country would abandon its defensive policy and peaceful development road, said the spokesman.

“Japan’s policies and moves in the military and security areas has been closely watched by its Asian neighbours and the international community,” he said.

Hong called on Japan to stick to a peaceful development road and act prudently in the military security field, and do more that help regional peace and stability.

Over 90 percent of Japan’s constitutional experts believe that the legislation violates the Japanese supreme law.
