Japanese PM wants military interventions abroad

The Japanese Constitution was created after the country's defeat in World War II.

"We will continue to defend the pacifism that the Japanese Constitution advocates," said Abe.

Abe's decision left worried Japan's neighbors, particularly South Korea and China. Memories of World War II are still very present: "we ask that Japan observe the deep and sincere concerns of other countries in the region, keep a path of peaceful development, reflect on the story and engage in building peace and stability in the region," said An Hua Chunying, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The Japan has been doing military exercises. The most controversial, in January, were a simulation of the conquest of an island to an enemy country. Any resemblance to a territorial dispute with China, the purpose of some islets, is not mere coincidence.
