Japan lifted a total ban on arms exports

Since 1 April, Japan formally renounced the policy of the actual ban on the export of weapons and military technology, which operated for half a century. In return, the government adopted new principles related to the supply of arms abroad.

From now on, states that are not in a state of military conflict or under the restrictive sanctions of the UN Security Council can count on Japanese armament. In this case, the weapons supplied by the Land of the Rising Sun should contribute to the peace and security of Japan.

In 1967, Tokyo adopted three principles for the export of weapons: it was forbidden to be sold to communist states, to countries that are subject to UN sanctions or in conflicts. In 1976, the government of Japan announced that it was in fact completely refusing such supplies in accordance with its pacifist foreign policy. Then there were some exceptions - first of all for the USA.
