Japan premier talks tough on China’s military

By Zheng Yangpeng, China Daily, 2011-09-15 —

BEIJING – Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said on Wednesday he was concerned about China’s military development, urging his neighbor to act as a "responsible member of the international community".

"I am concerned about their reinforcement of national defense power, which lacks transparency, and their acceleration of maritime activities," Noda told the Japanese parliament.

This is not the first time Noda, labeled as hawkish toward China, has made such statements in public.

In an article published in the latest edition of the Japanese magazine Bungei Shunju, he said China’s "high-handed foreign posture … backed by its military capabilities … is stoking fears that China will disrupt the order within the region". . . .
