In the past few years, the United States has been pressuring Japan to host its nuclear weapons as it seeks to dominate the Asia Pacific region.
Yesterday, amid the war between Ukraine and Russia, the Japanese gave a definitive answer, No.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reportedly said that “given our country’s stance of maintaining the three non-nuclear principles,” Tokyo will not be going into a nuclear-sharing deal with the US. (Xinhua)
Japan has stuck by its core principles of not producing, possessing or allowing nuclear weapons on its territory since the devastating bombs that destroyed both Hiroshima and Nagasaki in WWII.
This had dealt a big blow to US and NATO which have sought to surround other nuclear powers such as Russia, India and China by installing nuclear and army bases all around them.
