Russia’s attack on Ukraine has shattered the world’s security system
During the Shangri-La Dialogue Security Summit in Singapore, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced plans for a new national security strategy by the end of the year to “increase deterrence and response”.
The head of the Japanese government made such a statement during a speech in which he warned that “the whole of East Asia may turn into Ukraine today tomorrow.”
“In light of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, countries’ views on security have changed dramatically around the world,” Fumio Kisida was quoted as saying by Japan Today .
And, according to the newspaper, this is a significant increase in the country’s defense budget beyond 2% of GDP, which meets the requirements of NATO countries. Official Tokyo now adheres to defense spending below 1% of the $ 5 trillion estimated in the country’s GDP.
At the same time, Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi expressed concern to his Chinese counterpart about the recent joint flight of Chinese and Russian bombers near Japan, which was seen as a “show of strength” against his country.
Kishi told reporters he called on China to exercise “restraint” in the East China and South China Seas, expressing serious concern over “Beijing’s unilateral attempts to change the status quo by force.”
