The Saturday editions of all national papers reported that the Defense Ministry launched a taskforce on Friday to update the existing National Security Strategy, the National Defense Program Guidelines, and the Medium Term Defense Program. The panel, which is headed by Defense Minister Kishi, will look into measures to modernize defense hardware so that the SDF can cope with the increasingly severe security situation. “It is important to hold cool-headed, pragmatic discussions to identify what will be necessary to defend peace and people’s lives amid the rapid progress of military technology,” the cabinet member was quoted as saying at the onset of the first meeting. “We will look into every option, including acquiring capabilities to strike enemy bases.”
