All national dailies wrote that a joint panel of the ruling LDP’s Research Commission on Security and National Defense Division started discussing on Monday a review of the National Security Strategy, including the possible introduction of the capability to attack enemy bases. The panel plans to draw up a proposal around May next year and will also review and update the National Defense Program Guidelines and the Mid-Term Defense Program. Former Defense Minister Onodera, who chairs the joint panel, said that Japan might need to develop a Japanese version of the U.S. National Defense Strategy. The paper speculated that the strategy would be developed to enhance coordination between the U.S. military and the SDF by making the two nations’ documents consistent with each other.
