Kyodo reported on Sunday that the GOJ is mulling classifying certain portions of the National Defense Program Guidelines (NDPG) when it updates them in December to prevent the nation’s detailed plans for responding to contingences from being disclosed to such potential adversaries as Russia, China, and North Korea. In revising the existing 2018 NDPG, the GOJ is reportedly set to follow the example of the U.S. National Defense Strategy, large portions of which are classified.
