Kishida dismisses possibility of Japan going nuclear

Nikkei and Mainichi took up remarks made at the Diet yesterday by Prime Minister Kishida in response to a question from an opposition politician on whether he is considering the possibility of the nation acquiring nuclear weapons. The question was posed in reference to the premier’s earlier remarks that “all options must be explored amid the rapid advancement of missile technology” when looking into the possibility of allowing the SDF to possess capabilities to strike enemy bases. “The three nonnuclear principles are a national credo,” the premier was quoted as saying. “Japan’s use or possession of nuclear weapons is not an option.”
