Japan will explain its defense course to neighboring countries

Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan Yosyhide Suga said that the government will explain to China and South Korea its basic vision of collective self-defense.

Today, in an interview with reporters, Suga noted that, with the exception of China and South Korea, other countries in the region are sympathetic to Japan's position on this issue, NHK TV reports.

Suga said the clarifications would be transmitted through diplomatic channels in order to get understanding from China and South Korea.

On Thursday, the two countries expressed concern after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe laid out the main thrust of discussions on Japan's right to collective self-defense.

Abe announced his intention to start consultations within the ruling coalition in order to make it possible for Japan to use the right to collective self-defense in a limited form by changing the interpretation of the current constitution of the country.
