Japan's new security bills against trend of the times: defense ministry

(Source: Xinhua)   2015-09-19

  BEIJING, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Japan's new security laws run counter to the trend of the times that upholds peace, development and cooperation, the Ministry of National Defense (MOD) said on Saturday.

  The MOD made the comment after Japan's upper house of parliament passed the bills on Saturday.

  The Japanese upper house of parliament, irrespective of strong opposition from both the international community and its own people, forced through the bills in an unprecedented shift of military and security policy, the MOD said in a statement.

  "The move has breached the restrictions of Japan's pacifist constitution," said the MOD.

  Japan's cold war mentality, its reinforcement of military alliances and attempts to send more troops abroad has aroused grave concern among its own citizens, Asian neighboring countries and the international society, the MOD said.

  ""We urge Japan to learn profound lessons from history, heed the security concern of its Asian neighboring countries, stick to the peaceful development road and do more that are condusive to regional peace and stability," said the MOD.

  It said the Chinese side will closely watch the next steps of Japan.
