|Japan began its first military expansion at the western end of its island chain in more than 40 years on Saturday Xavi Hernandez Barcelona Jersey , breaking ground on a radar station on a tropical island off Taiwan.
The move risks angering China, locked in a dispute with Japan over nearby islands which they both claim.
Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera, who attended a ceremony on Yonaguni island to mark the start of construction, suggested the military presence could be enlarged to other islands in the seas southwest of Japan’s main islands.
“This is the first deployment since the U.S. returned Okinawa (1972) and calls for us to be more on guard are growing,” Onodera told reporters. “I want to build an operation able to properly defend islands that are part of Japan’s territory.”
The military radar station on Yonaguni Thomas Vermaelen Barcelona Jersey , part of a longstanding plan to improve defense and surveillance, gives Japan a lookout just 150 km from the Diaoyu islands.
Building the base could extend Japanese monitoring to the Chinese mainland and track Chinese ships and aircraft circling the disputed crag.
The 30-sq-km Yonanguni is home to 1,500 people and known for strong rice liquor, cattle, sugar cane and scuba diving. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s decision to put troops there shows Japan’s concerns about the vulnerability of its thousands of islands and the perceived threat from China.
The new base “should give Japan the ability to expand surveillance to near the Chinese mainland Sergio Busquets Barcelona Jersey ,” said Heigo Sato, a professor at Takushoku University and a former researcher at the Defense Ministry’s National Institute for Defense Studies.
“It will allow early warning of missiles and supplement the monitoring of Chinese military movements.”
Japan does not specify an exact enemy when discussing its defense strategy but it makes no secret it perceives China generally as a threat as it becomes an Asian power that could one day rival Japan’s ally in the region, the United States.
Japan, in its National Defense Program Guidelines issued in December, expressed “great concern” over China’s military buildup and “attempts to change the status quo by coercion” in the sea and air.
China’s decision last year to establish an air-defense identification zone in the East China Sea Sergi Roberto Barcelona Jersey , including the skies above the disputed Diaoyu islets, further rattled Tokyo.
Japanese and Chinese navy and coast guard ships have played cat-and-mouse around the uninhabited islands since Japan nationalised the territory in 2012. Japanese warplanes scrambled against Chinese planes a record 415 times in the year through to March, the Defense Ministry said last week.
Tapping concern about China, Abe raised military spending last fiscal year for the first time in 11 years to help bolster Japan’s capability to fight for islands with a new marine unit, more longer-range aircraft Samuel Umtiti Barcelona Jersey , amphibious assault vehicles and helicopter carriers. Japan’s thousands of islands give it nearly 30,000 km of coastline to defend.
Onodera’s groundbreaking ceremony on Yonaguni took place four days before President Barack Obama lands in Tokyo for a summit with Abe, the first state visit by a U.S. president in 18 years.
US President Donald Trump pledged his backing for NATO at the start of a high-stakes visit to Europe on Thursday as he warned that the future of the West was at risk.
In key US ally Poland on the first leg of the trip, he also accused Russia of "destabilizing" action and warned North Korea it faced "consequences" after an intercontinental ballistic missile test that has alarmed the international community.
On the eve of what is likely to be a prickly G20 summit, with Trump facing animosity from traditional US allies Rafinha Barcelona Jersey , he used his keynote address in Warsaw to warn that a lack of collective resolve could doom an alliance that endured through the Cold War.
"The defense of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail," he said. "The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive."
Seeking to ease allies' concerns about the US commitment to NATO, Trump endorsed its one-for-all-and-all-for-one mutual defense pact.
"The US has demonstrated not merely with words, but with actions, that we stand firmly behind Article Five Paulinho Barcelona Jersey ," he said, while calling for more defense spending on the eastern side of the Atlantic. "The transatlantic bond between the US and Europe is as strong as ever, and maybe in many ways, even stronger."-
Just a day before he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20, Trump offered rare criticism of Russia's "destabilizing" behavior.
He also said Moscow "may have" tried to influence the 2016 election that brought him to power Paco Alcacer Barcelona Jersey , but suggested others too may have been involved.
The White House wanted to use Trump's Warsaw speech - with its echoes of historic Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy's addresses overseas - to burnish his credentials as a global statesman and deflect suggestions he is making the US a virtual pariah.
Speaking at Krasinski Square - which memorializes the Warsaw uprising against Nazi occupation - Trump pointed to Poland as an example of resolve in the defense of Western traditions.
Around 10,000 people turned out to see him, many arriving on free buses laid on by Poland's conservative ruling party, which was eager to ensure Trump got the adulation he craves.
