Japan Remains Concerned Over China’s Rising Aggression
Japan’s annual defence review on Tuesday expressed “deep concern” over what it sees as China’s coercion, as a more assertive Beijing flouts international rules when dealing with other nations.
Japan’s Defence White Paper comes amid heightened tension in Asia less than a month after an arbitration court in the Hague invalidated China’s sweeping claims in the disputed South China Sea, in a case brought by the Philippines.
China has refused to recognise the ruling. Japan called on China to adhere to the verdict, which it said was binding. Beijing retorted by warning Tokyo not to interfere.
In the defence review approved by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government, Japan warned that “unintended consequences” could result from Beijing’s assertive disregard of international rules.
