Tokyo, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Japanese government on Tuesday adopted a new national security strategy and defense policy package spearheaded by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who claimed the latest in a number of defense-boosting measures was to better equip the nation to be a "proactive peacekeeper."
In a Cabinet meeting Tuesday a wholesale, revised defense program was approved Luis Neto Mundial Camisola , which also outlines a five year medium-term buildup of Japan's Self-Defense Forces' (SDF) personnel and hardware, as Abe and the United States take yet further strides to see the SDF potentially playing more active roles overseas.
To this end, the new strategy, as well as possibly revising Japan's weapons exports ban, which has been a constitutionally thorny issue, calls for a review of the longstanding Japan-U.S. defense accord, in a bid to bolster the two allies' defensive capabilities.
But while Abe in an earlier press conference Tuesday insisted that the medium-term and also the longer-term defense strategies have been designed with global peace and international transparency in mind Pepe Mundial Camisola , some analysts beg to differ.
Political pundits here have highlighted the fact that under the new guidelines, robust provisions will be made to integrate various units within the SDF, specifically Japan's Air, Ground and Maritime Self-Defense Forces, with an aim to improving the quality and quantity of the units and optimizing their mobility.
"The new strategy in the mid-term has earmarked a budget 230 billion U.S. dollars for the buildup of Japan's forces over the next five years, which is a massive hike in military spending for a country constitutionally committed to pacifism," political commentator and Shizuoka-based author Philip McNeil told Xinhua.

He went on to say that Japan is also prepping itself to be able to take preemptive missile strikes against overseas bases, a diversion from the current policy which already uses next- generation missile technology and radars capable of shooting down ballistic missiles, were such an attack be launched against Japan.
"Japan is also looking to increase its surveillance drone fleet, add F-35 stealth fighters and a number of combat vehicles to its armory Rui Patricio Mundial Camisola , and according to Abe this is how 'proactive pacifism' translates. I fear, as well as alarming the citizens here ---- who elected Abe based on his dedication to fixing the economy and have found themselves with a pro-military, nationalist leader ---- Japan's neighbors will also be very, very concerned," he said.
"Japan is embroiled in a number of territorial disputes with neighboring countries in East Asia. Countries which have and shou.
