Saturday’s Nikkei took up remarks made on an internet TV program on Friday night by Prime Minister Kishida on the administration’s plan to revise the 2013 National Security Strategy. Noting that the military threat posed by China has increased since the key national defense document was released almost a decade ago, the premier underscored that there are many elements that must be reviewed, including how to deal with China from the standpoint of defending Japan. He added that issues such as remote island defense and outer space and cyberspace will be taken up in the revised document.
