Japan's Servile Attitude to US Flailed

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, July 9 (KCNA) -- Japan officially agreed with the U.S. on transferring the Futenma military base in Okinawa Prefecture to Henoko within the prefecture despite the strong protest by the Japanese people. This agreement was made at the recent U.S.-Japan "security" consultative committee.

This is a product of Japan's servility toward the U.S. aimed to meet its own interests, says Rodong Sinmun Saturday in a bylined commentary.

It goes on:

The Japanese authorities complied with its master's demand in utter disregard of the domestic public opinion. Its aim is to realize its ambition to emerge a military power baked by the U.S.

The Japanese militarist forces seek to launch an overseas aggression under the U.S. war umbrella and thus realize at any cost their old dream of the "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere." It is prompted by this ambition that Japan agreed with the U.S. to move the controversial military base to the place within the same prefecture under the pretext of tightened alliance with it while talking about regional instability.

It is also for this purpose that Japan seeks to transfer an interceptor missile for missile defense to a third country, departing from the framework of the "three principles of arms export" which it puts up as a symbol of the "pacifist state".

The aim sought by the Japanese reactionaries is to render defunct the principles which put a brake on their moves to become a military power and launch overseas aggression with the U.S. backing.

The development proves that Japan is set to bolster its moves to become a military power in a legitimate way and create international atmosphere favorable for launching overseas aggression.

It had better face up to the reality and drop its sinister attempt to seek its own interests through the humiliating acts of serving the U.S.
