All papers reported on the reaction among senior ruling coalition officials to former Defense Minister Ishiba’s call for national debate on possibly allowing U.S. nuclear weapons to be brought into Japan. LDP Policy Research Council Chairman Kishida dismissed the need for such a debate by saying: “I don’t see any problem with the present state of U.S. nuclear deterrence. The three non-nuclear principles should be preserved.” Komeito Chief Representative Yamaguchi echoed a similar view by saying: “The three non-nuclear principles have been confirmed repeatedly. They must not be changed.”
