Tuesday’s Yomiuri reported that according to multiple GOJ sources, the Ministry of Defense has decided to request a record budget of 5.4 trillion yen for FY2021 , saying that the defense budget has increased for eight consecutive years. The paper said that in view of the increasingly severe security environment in the region due to the rapid military buildup of neighboring nations such as China and North Korea, the ministry deemed it necessary to further increase the defense budget to enable the SDF to respond.
