Large majority of Japanese, South Koreans alarmed by China’s military pressure 

Yomiuri front-paged the results of its public opinion survey of Japanese and South Koreans conducted jointly with an ROK media outlet in late May. Some 88% of Japanese and 72% of Korean respondents regarded China’s military pressure as a “threat.” Almost 60% of Japanese and 64% of Koreans said their governments should cooperate with the U.S. policy of stepping up the pressure on China. The percentage of Japanese and South Koreans who called for reconciliation in order to deal with China and North Korea was exactly the same at 68%. Almost eight out of ten Japanese and nine out of ten Koreans said bilateral relations are in “bad shape.”
