Japan PM Abe vows to boost armed forces

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday vowed to beef up his country’s defense capability amid a blistering row with China, saying he would deal firmly with any “provocations.” Abe, the commander-in-chief of Japan’s well-equipped armed forces, told 180 senior uniformed officers he would not bury his head in the sand. “We can’t avert our eyes from the reality… (that there has been) a flurry of provocations against our country’s sovereignty,” he told troops in an apparent reference to tensions with China over disputed islands. “I’m pushing for the regeneration of our country’s security by looking squarely at reality,” the premier said, without elaboration. Tokyo and Beijing have repeatedly butted heads over the ownership of the Japan-controlled Senkakus, which Beijing claims as the Diaoyus, with official Chinese ships and aircraft regularly testing Japanese forces.
