日本,「状況によっては北朝鮮に軍事攻撃を行う」

“ロイター通信によりますと、中谷大臣は19日火曜、異例の表明として、北朝鮮がアメリカをミサイル攻撃した場合、日本は北朝鮮を攻撃することが可能だと述べています。
日本の報道各社が、中谷大臣の話として報じたところによりますと、このミサイル攻撃は大惨事になると思われる為、その結果を考慮し、日本は北朝鮮に対するあらゆる軍事作戦に入る用意があるということです。
日本政府は最近、戦後初めて日本の自衛隊を国外での戦闘に派遣する許可を与える法案を可決しました。
中国と韓国はこれ以前に、日本の自衛隊が近い将来、海外での戦闘行為に参加できるようになることについて警告を発しており、日本に対し、性急な決定により地域の平和と安全を危機に陥れないよう警告しています”

'Japan can retaliate against North Korea'

“Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani said Sunday that Japan could retaliate against a North Korean base if Pyongyang launched a missile attack on the United States.

According to the Mainichi Shimbun, Monday, Nakatani made the remarks during an appearance in a program on Fuji Television.

The minister added that Tokyo's attack would be based on the premise that the U.S. was being attacked by the North and serious damage was expected.

Defense observers in South Korea said the comments about a possible attack on the North were very rare and are expected to provoke a strong response from the repressive state.

Nakatani's remarks came after Washington and Tokyo revised their defense guidelines on April 28.

The revision of the 1997 U.S.-Japan Defense Cooperation Pact removed geographic limits on the role of Japan's Self-Defense Forces, and expanded their role globally to help U.S. forces in military emergencies.

Collective self-defense is the right to engage in military activities overseas if one's allies are under attack. The revision has increased concerns that Tokyo may return to militarism.”
