   Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- Japan requested cooperation from the U.S. in the earlier deployment of the missile defence system (MD) at an examiner-level consultation between foreign and defence authorities of the U.S. and Japan held in Washington on August 7 and 8. Japan decided to allow the deployment of nuclear-powered carrier "George Washington" in the Yokosuka naval base. According to the agreement of the U.S. and Japanese authorities, the deployment of the latest Aegis missile cruiser "Shiloh" in the naval base had already been decided.
    Minju Joson Tuesday says in a signed commentary carried in this regard:
    The U.S. and Japan are amassing means for preemptive attack in Japan and other parts of Northeast Asia, raising a hue and cry over "military threat" from someone. This is a serious development as it is rendering the situation in the region extremely tense.
    Japan is zealously toeing the U.S. policy at a time when the latter is stretching its tentacles to the Asia-Pacific region to dominate it in a bid to make signal progress in executing Tokyo's old policy for militaristic overseas aggression.
    Of late Japan has directed special attention to the establishment of the MD and the revision of its "Pacifist Constitution".
    By introducing the MD with the political and military backing of the U.S. the Japanese reactionaries seek to provide a military guarantee for preemptive assaults on other countries and round off the capability to mount a preemptive attack upon the DPRK as early as possible among other things.
    It is their aim to launch wars of overseas aggression in real earnest with regular aggression forces by replacing the "Pacifist Constitution" by a war constitution.
    This clearly indicates that everything Japan is doing is aimed at building a militaristic state for overseas aggression.
    The reactionaries of Japan would be well advised to immediately stop getting on the nerves of its neighboring countries.
