Tokyo worried about rising Chinese military budget

20
Japanese Defense Minister Itunori Onodera expressed concern about the growth of military spending in China and the lack of transparency in this matter, reports TASS.




Behind a large increase in China’s military spending is the large-scale and rapid increase in the potential of the armed forces, active advancement into the ocean. All of this is accompanied by opacity and causes great concern in the international community and in our region, including Japan,
said Onodera at a press conference.

According to him, "there are also indications that the officially announced defense expenditures are no more than a part of the military budget of China."

We will continue to exert influence on him in cooperation with the countries concerned, seeking from China to increase transparency and comply with the rules of international behavior,
added the minister.

Recall, on Monday, Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Li Keqiang, said at the session of the All-China Assembly that Beijing this year increased its defense allocations by 8,1% compared to last year. Military spending will amount to 1,1 trillion. yuan ($ 175 billion). According to this indicator, China is in second place in the world after the United States.

      and humanism. It’s better for the Japanese to deal with the consequences of Fokushima in surrealism. China? The Chinese nation is disciplined. At the call of the Communist Party, a destructive earthquake simultaneously jumped up and again in Japan. And what if, by order of the kompatii, they float to surrender to the illustrious self-defense forces of Japan? belay

      The population of China is practically not growing. It has stabilized
      in the region of 1,3 -1,4 billion

    For the Japanese, there is only one threat - the presence of US military bases on their islands. It can fly from China, and from Russia, and from the DPRK. They would say no to the American invaders, expel them from their islands, settle territorial issues with Russia and China, and live in peace without looking into other people's military budgets.

    a country on the territory of which there are no foreign military bases should ensure transparency in front of countries that are simply filled with these very bases ...

    What! They are afraid that China will recall the aggression of the forties of the last century. How many Chinese were destroyed, how many chemical experiments carried out on them. Do not do evil to your neighbor - there will be no judgment! Now tremble on your islands crying fool

    Why the Japanese are worried about the military budget of China. Everyone lives according to their prosperity, that they should be guided by the Japanese, as if they are not armed.
