Japan plans to deploy anti-ship missiles in the south

17
In Tokyo, they began to consider the issue of deploying anti-ship missiles in the southern prefecture of Okinawa for potential protection from Chinese warships, reports TASS the message of the newspaper Asahi.




According to the newspaper, this issue is currently being worked through by the Ministry of Defense and the National Security Council of Japan. It is expected that the decision will be made before the end of this year. If approved, anti-ship missiles with a range of 200 km will be deployed in Okinawa.

It is reported that the Japanese authorities are very concerned about the sea activity of China in the East China Sea, in particular, in the Miyako Strait and near the disputed Senkaku Islands (Diaoyudao), which are controlled by Tokyo, and which are claimed by the Chinese authorities.

Recall that at the beginning of the year, the newest Shan-class Chinese naval submarine of the Chinese Navy was noticed in the area, which caused the serious concern of the Japanese side. The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs then demanded that Beijing prevent a recurrence of such incidents.

      Japan has done so much evil in its history that it is better for them to sit quietly and not wake famously.

        Be fair. It is difficult to expect from Japan that it will just go gray and watch how the Chinese Armed Forces strengthen (their closest and very unfriendly neighbor). Japan's fears are more than justified.

          I agree, although it all started earlier, it was in 1945 that Japan put on a strict collar. sad

    Japan is impatient to face China who is cooler? Where the US base of the world do not wait. While under American occupation, they are making territorial claims against Russia, waving their fists at China. Maybe at first it would be necessary to get rid of the occupying forces? World covers military paranoia.

        Capital requires new investments! Nothing new, but very dangerous ... I hope that it’s just that spring aggravation sets in, again and temporarily!

    They are afraid that China will recall their "good neighborly" relations in the past. And the fact that the PRC is nearby on the Japanese islands is full of small bases, China also does not like it. If the Japanese continue to work as mattress covers, then they should draw in the red circle of their flag rings of different diameters with digits - the target, however!

      China is certainly a giant, it will become bigger and bigger.
      But around there, long-standing tramp and Yankees are trying to uncover all the old grievances and conflicts.
      Asians, Hindus, and generally all there are not the most stupid guys. They can calmly disperse.

        To be honest, looking into the past of China, I doubt that they are striving to significantly expand their territories - to set up some of their neighbors with their awesome armada so that they do not rock the boat - this is most likely. With the Japanese and the Anglo-Saxons they have a historical dislike, but the war itself is unlikely to unleash. I think that the Chinese goal is to oust mattresses from the region, and for the most part they will deal with the rest for the most part.
