Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) –The Japanese Sankei Shimbun reported that the Japan Defence Agency is contemplating deploying 4 “FPS-XX”, new type ground radar, in Niigata, Okinawa and other places to cope with the possible “missile attacks” of the DPRK and China. This comes under fire by a signed commentary of Rodong Sinmun Monday.
Such move of the Japanese reactionaries is aimed at legalizing and justifying their preemptive strikes at the DPRK and China as “military actions for self-defence” under the pretext of “intercepting” ballistic missiles, the commentary observes, and goes on:
It is well known that the Japanese reactionaries have pushed forward the revision of the “law on Self-Defence Forces” for the purpose of buying cruise missile “Tomahawk” and “intercepting” ballistic missiles under the pretext of a “precautionary measure.”
The above-mentioned revision of the law is clearly aimed at mounting a preemptive attack, not for defence.
The Japanese reactionaries’ proposed revision of the law allows the director general of the Defence Agency to order the interception of any missiles when there is the sign of flying towards Japan with the consent of the prime minister and the commander of a SDF unit to issue an order to intercept any missiles with his own decision in case of their surprise launch even in the absence of any sign.
Their planned deployment of the new type ground radar is a dangerous move to make preemptive missile strikes at the DPRK and China.
The Japanese reactionaries are also contemplating working out a “plan for Japan-U.S. joint counter-action” under the pretext of coping with an “emergency” in the surrounding areas. At the meeting of “the U.S.-Japan security consultative committee” held in February last Japan confirmed a “common strategic goal.”
These are also rash military acts of disturbing regional stability.
