Asahi and Tokyo Shimbun took up remarks at the parliament on Monday by Foreign Minister Kono, who commented on the Nuclear Posture Review released last week by the Trump administration by saying: “It expresses a clear U.S. commitment to nuclear deterrence for its allies. There is no reason for us to say anything other than to appreciate it highly.” The minister stressed that the nuclear and missile threat posed by North Korea has become even more serious than it was in 2009 when President Obama made his historic speech in Prague calling for a world without nuclear weapons.
