LDP policy chief calls for debate on “introduction” of nuclear weapons

Today’s Nikkei, Yomiuri, and Sankei took up remarks made on a Sunday talk show by LDP Policy Research Council Chairwoman Takaichi. She underscored that in view of the war in Ukraine, it is important to commence parliamentary discussions on allowing the introduction of U.S. nuclear weapons to Japanese territory in the event of a contingency. The politician said that if Japan were to prohibit a U.S. military plane carrying nuclear weapons from entering its territorial airspace, it would be tantamount to dismissing nuclear deterrence.
