Nikkei reported that the ruling LDP is set to ask the Kishida administration to increase defense spending substantially in FY2022 in view of China’s relentless military operations across the Taiwan Strait and in the South and East China Seas. The ruling party will also call for “fundamental enhancement” of defense capabilities in view of the rapidly changing security environment, including in outer space and cyberspace.
