NHK took up remarks made to the press this morning by Defense Minister Kishi, who dismissed former Prime Minister Abe’s proposal for Japan to “share” the nuclear weapons of the United States. “If the proposal is premised on a mechanism in which U.S. nuclear weapons would be stored in Japanese territory during peacetime and mounted on SDF aircraft or other assets for deployment in a contingency, it would never be accepted from the standpoint of upholding the three non-nuclear principles,” he was quoted as saying.
