At a press conference held on April 12, Komeito leader Yamaguchi Natsuo commented on Japan’s “exclusively defense-oriented policy,” which is based on Article 9 of the Constitution. “The policy is a basic principle that Japan has upheld throughout the postwar period under Article 9, and it must be preserved,” he said. The remark was made in response to calls for changing the name [of Japan’s defense posture] and its interpretation at a meeting of the Liberal Democratic Party’s Research Commission on Security on April 11.
