National security to include possibility to enemy bases for self-defence: Japan PM

Tokyo: Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that the national security strategy should include the possibility to enemy bases for self-defence purposes. According to the Japanese prime minister, this initiative is linked to the growing military capabilities of North Korea that carry out missile tests.

To safeguard people's lives, it is necessary to take a position that allows considering various options given the developments," Kishida said. He added that the national security strategy should be revised as soon as possible.

The idea to include the possibility to attack enemy bases for self-defence purposes into the national security strategy was voiced by former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe but his successor, Yoshihide Suga, delayed the decision on the issue.
