Party of Hope policy research committee chair Akihisa Nagashima commented on the issue of “enemy base attack capability,” or the ability to attack another country’s bases for self-defense, at a Nov. 21 meeting of a supra-partisan group of Diet members supporting the strengthening of the Japan-U.S. alliance. He said: “As a matter of course it is necessary to discuss the need for such a capability,” indicating a favorable view on acquiring this capability.
