A Bipartisan Effort Seeks to Create US Presence in the Pacific

"Can you explain a little bit to me what you and senator hirano are up to? Well, I think we see the region in the whole indo Pacific is extremely strategic and vital to America. We see China's very aggressive posture, just look what they recently done in the Solomon island. Signing a security agreement with the Solomon Islands that they are trying to use their typical means of corruption, the debt trap diplomacy they deploy, et cetera, to get more of these smaller nations to fall their way, whether it's to put pressure on Taiwan, whether it's to get more votes in these multilateral organizations like the United Nations. I think the United States needs to be more present and we need to have more connectivity in that region. We certainly have a major presence in Japan. You're well aware of you and I have talked about it many times before, but the largest component of U.S. Military stationed anywhere is based in Japan, why served as U.S. ambassador, most recently, and we have incredible strategic interest in the region. It's a vital area for growth, the busy sea lanes in the world and East China Sea, South China Sea, our interests are very much aligned with keeping a free and open region there in the Pacific.

China steps up threats to reclaim Taiwan

"China's rise as a great power it showing more and more attention towards reclaiming territory that long regarded as its own witness. Beijing's conduct in the south china sea. The east china sea hong kong the himalayan border with india. And of course. Taiwan fifteen chinese planes were detected flying into taiwan southwest air defense identification zone or on sunday taiwan's ministry of national defense said sunday's incursion involved twelve fighter jets to anti-submarine aircraft and reconnaissance plane. This comes less than twenty four hours. After the people's liberation army air force flew thirteen combat aircraft including chinese bomber planes capable of carrying nuclear weapons into the same region that was from the south korean english language. Every rung account of china's recent intimidation of the lovely liberal democracy of nearly twenty four million people. now one of my guest today has warned the australian defence department. Beijing is highly likely to attempt to take over taiwan using all means short of war as early as twenty. Twenty four ponder that a chinese takeover of taiwan by twenty twenty four. Linda jacobson is the specialist who delivered this assessment to the morrison government. A few months ago linder is founding director and deputy chair of china matters and she joins us from finland. Hello linda welcome back to between the lines. Thank you for having me again. Tom and joining us in sydney. Is natasha qassam. A research fellow at the low institute by the natasha. Thanks for having me tom now. Linda recently published. China matter explores policy brief. Summarize succinctly or faces tom. We've been talking for a long time. That taiwan is possibly explosive issue in our region. I'm saying it again now. Because the president xi jinping has made it clear that contrary to his predecessors he does not think we can leave the unresolved political status of taiwan to future generations. He wants to see movement towards what the chinese say reunification of the mainland and taiwan during his lifetime. That's the first point. The second one is that as of late. Probably because of some of the recent events which you alluded to among others the pfc's actions in hong kong. There's been a lot of talk of war of outright military conflict between taiwan and the pfc. I think these media reports have the problem into the wrong perspective. I think it is unlikely that we will see outright war over taiwan's future but we are very likely to see beijing making a move which is a protractive extensive intensive campaign of pressure using all means short of war to bring the taiwanese political leadership to its knees and agree to negotiate nothing more without preconditions taiwanese leadership has already said they will negotiate. But the pfc wants to negotiate on the basis that there is only one china in other words in negotiations have to end in some sort of agreement about unification so that's in a nutshell is what the policy brief argues. We should appear for this kind of extensive intensive pressure campaign using all means short of a case. i'm not. She heard linda's assessment. There of the chinese threat to taiwan china's military invasion of taiwan's unlikely. Highly unlikely so expect by gene to launch a step by step coercion of taiwan using all main short of war to force taiwan's latest into negotiations to etc unification natasha. What's your response. I'm inclined to agree with linda that this kind of phased coercion with many policy measures that china can easily scale up is the most likely scenario are and we can already see that happening. We can already see china attempting to launch multiple cyber attacks in taiwan to economically co west taiwan to try to put pressure intensive media coverage and even to infiltrate some of those local level groups to try to tan politics in a different way in taiwan. All these measures today have been relatively unsuccessful. China made it very clear that they wa against the current president citing win and that they were going to punish the taiwanese for her. These kinds of measures only encouraged the taiwanese people the vast majority of which do not want to be a part of china to turn out in support and fight to when last year. And at the same time we've also seen the country really come together during this covid nineteen pandemic and we've seen a really incredible of trust in institutions and in that democratic system of government. In a way that perhaps we haven't seen in other countries so i'm inclined to agree with these being the right measures but on the other hand i would say that the military option very much remains on the table not perhaps in the short term but from china's the incredible buildup of the people's liberation army that we've seen over the past decade has very much been directed at a potential taiwan

How to move forward with China

"To fourteen point list of grievances via the australian media. Second wine joined beef. Bali timber lobster call among our exports that the chinese communist party has imposed tariffs on. And then that tweet. This is the tweet of the posting of a digitally altered of an australian soldier about to slit the throat of an afghan child. The chinese embassy issuing a bellicose statement the rage in roar of some ustralian politicians and media was misreading and reaction. It said to deflect public attention from the horrible atrocities by sickness soldiers and to blame china for the worsening of bilateral ties. So what's going on. He and asha camera respond. Jeff rabi is a former australian ambassador to the people's republic of china and he's author of china's grand strategy and australia's feature in the new global order. That's just been published and it's available in all good bookstores jeff. Welcome back to the show so some great to be back now. I your thoughts about beijing's response to australia in recent weeks so we have that list of the foreign complaints the wind terrace and of course that tweet while a say i up disappointing to see the slights that have been made After the two quite constructive comments at the triumph prime minister a last week quite clearly. The prime minister was Diplomatically signaling That there was a strong wish to start a process of getting back to some sort of more normal relationship between the two countries the product make though it sounds dramatic when you run those three things together the way you have done that certainly not the same thing. And i'm not sure that they're all necessarily coordinated. I mean the fourteen points clearly seems to be freelancing by the embassy on matters that well known and in the public record in any case at a very odd way of putting something out if you leak it to a channel nine television crew that seems to be pretty casual behavior by the embassy then the tariff spo there has been a processing trained for months on the wind tariffs and i do understand that that was the normal process and the strain companies were busily making written submissions as part of that process. And then the tweet The present time it sounds like it's been contrived by the chinese foreign ministry as individual action. it was a tweet that was particularly widely on social media by a now nationalist artist and twitter and the foreign ministry spokesperson on his private twitter account. Pinder to name and so it's philippine. Middle level action doesn't really look to millions of any of these really coordinated broad cross section of the australian people just looking at the y. People who've responded this week is there is outrage and surely win china. does things like. This doesn't make it harder for people like you because you've been an eminent company on this issue for several years now. Hugh watt a bobcar. Pass gas on this program. Of course the former prime minister paul keating. Doesn't it make it hot. A all of you to make the case that al leaders should try to rebuild trust with such a regime yet. I can understand the public outrage especially the media is going into overdrive steer and just as you have said running all these things together as a coordinated action from the state It does make it harder to get sensible constructive discussion going a story about how we deal with these things. I like to find myself in such august company as you outlined. And you might add gareth evans. Many others that to the group as well but it certainly history doesn't help and it's difficult context in which to conduct foreign policy. What we're seeing is what is like to live in the situation with china relationships In a very poor state now. Other people in camera that i see welcome this their peopling camera who have the view that bad relations with china are inevitable. This is the new normal. We should get used to it and lupus it while the questioning myself. And the august company you've being linking me with. Is this the best interest of australia. And it also basic question. Your what has australia down to bring on china's in this way why you think china is picking on again. Picking on is quite pejorative. They're not doing this to other states. Our other key point. And i would phrase that differently tom i would say how is it that astray amongst like minded friends and allies other liberal democracies in the world in the region why's at the trial has become an outlaw and i think that really needs to be part of the public discussion. Isn't the reason. The australia is so over exposed to chinese pressure in beijing. Nosy so the chinese leaders going to inflict pain on australia whenever they can't australia. And not the other like minded way boy more. In other countries we ought to forty percent of our exports to china. No other country has that kind of exposure. I prefer countries in the region. China is by far the largest trading power. I mean that exposure would be the same for korea south korea which is liberal democracy in the region. it would be near that level. For nearly all the countries in the east asian region china is the dominant economic patna of all of the countries in the region and that is just a fact at its reflects. The extent to which china has grown as the dominant economic power in east asia. Alexander downer. The former. Foreign minister says that now's the time to reduce our exposure to china. But what everyone is saying. There's nothing new novel in that. And obviously when people start to realize that we are going to have for a long time a difficult and challenging relationship with china's manage. That's a fairly obvious. Point to make interesting from In addition to being former minister former director of the board of while clay. And very active Proponent in boosting. Australia china trade relations phrase time as soon as minister and i work very closely with him in that and i think we achieved a lot. So why wouldn't you wanna diversify every sensible business. Every sensible company diversifies the port made over and over again on this aspect is that it's going to be very hard. Because of the absolute scale and growth and prosperity of china. You are a foreign policy realist. All gripe house ruthless and that includes chana hardball at every turn and the stronger. China gets the more likely to throw its wide around now to the extent. These realist analysis is correct. How on earth do we solve. this problem. absolutely correct agree with all those points. Another point that needs to be made. And you don't make it much tom. And your pride yourself as being a realist and that is the relationship is asymmetrical that is effect. We need china. More than china needs us. This is not a comfortable place for us to be but it's a place we are. It's a place where we're stack and will remain and so We need to work out how to manage that relationship and we haven't done a particularly good job of a judging by the state rewritten today. So although you express yourself in a different way you essentially gray with the foreign policy realists professor join me shauna regular guest on this program and he argues that his china's power increases its definition of its national interests will grow and then beijing will seek a survey influence in areas on which its future security and prosperity dependent in response. The us will go to great lengths to stop china's rises. It essentially. your argument is well up a poet. I'm a great Admire of joint mish as well. I differ with him on a couple of points but his analysis and arguments have been hugely influential in helping me shape my thinking about these But i put on sphere of influence is. I think that's already happened. I think china is the dominant paranagua this at length in my book in eurasia from the east china sea to also china is the dominant parent. That's happened largely because sanctions against russia poor economic performance by russia Pushback from from europe against russia has meant that brushes had to cede to china's ascendancy in eurasia and so very part of the world. And i think we now live in a world of michigan talks about a world of two great powers with boundary orders and in the question then becomes is some equilibrium at stable between the two. And i believe there is.

Shinzo Abe Becomes Japan’s Longest-Serving Prime Minister

"Shinzo our prime. My Minister of Japan will today be celebrating. What would have seemed a decade or so back an unlikely milestone? He is now the longest serving prime minister. In Japan's history is brief stint from two thousand six to two thousand seven added to the longest stretch has enjoyed since two thousand twelve has overhauled the benchmark set by. Juke Cuts Toro three times. Prime Minister of a very different Japan in the early years of the twentieth century. Nobody serves as long as a house without tapping into something in their electorate. So in our base case Wat- one joined with more on this Spicer David Warren Former UK ambassador to Japan now Associate Fellow with the Asia Pacific Program At Chatham House David thank you for joining us rb. Does he have a particular singular secret. Is there one thing about him which is got into where he's got to and kept him there i. It's hard to say that he does although he's clearly a competent politician in Japanese terms. And he's come to the premiership of Japan of course after a period of intense political volatility extending over decades in Japanese politics. Prime Minister for the most part have come and gone and there's genuine public Cynicism and discontent with the fragile nature of Jap the Japanese politics so in a sense he benefited from having come after a period of great great Great Tab instability and he benefited also from having a very weak opposition during this period because the opposition party which was in government government three years between two thousand nine and two thousand twelve when it was cold. Democratic Party of Japan has been itself Rhythm With factions and essentially all over the place in terms of being able to land any punches on the Liberal Democratic Party government. So you haven't any competition in the end. He hasn't much competition from outside the party. And he's given the Japanese people a sense of stability which I think they have respected. So you wouldn't say there's an RB ISM as such. There is not a philosophical cornerstone to him philosophical cornerstone to him. But I'm not certain. It's one shared by the Jersey of Japanese people originally from the nationalist wing of the Liberal Democratic Party Much of his Political philosophy is good on. We habilitation his grandfather who was prime minister of Japan in the nineteen fifties and had a very problematical record in the nineteen thirties and forties during Japan's occupation career and four in China. And he has a nationalist. I think wants to both rehabilitate Prime Minister Kitchen. Gran- grandfather's father's mutation and also to turn the page so to speak on Japan's problematic history in ways. which do not necessitate? The next generation of Japanese need having to grapple as much with the the difficult politics of apology that other innovations have had to do But that nationalism is ten uh-huh by a political pragmatism of the recognition that He needs to fix the Japanese economy. Most Japanese voices are more worried about economic issues the constitutional nationally issues and that. Whatever obeys nationalist impulse maybe he needs to ventilate them in ways which staint disturb Japan's regional neighbours particularly China and Korea He had a very different sense of twentieth century. History in in that regard with China. He's got the relationship back onto something more of an even Keel career. It's much more difficult than well. How successful do you think he has been the not very by the sound of it? IN-IN addressing those difficult relationships with its neighbors in the region often overhung as they are by a history of world war. Two Cudi of done more. Well he's been successful with China. I think it's fair to say you inherited a difficult situation with China in in two thousand twelve when he became prime minister. The previous government nationalized the disputed islands in the East China Sea. which had alienated the Chinese Government and lead to a serious deterioration in the relationship nationalism. In the sense to prevent extreme nationalist getting the hands on them relations the China very very difficult and after initial period of tension. In which are they Like some of his predecessors as prime minister visited controversial Ashley yesterday shrine intake I they has invested considerable effort in establishing more of a relationship with Xi Jinping and getting the relationship back onto who Something more bridging equilibrium. Now there is talk. All Xi Jinping making a state visit to Japan in the spring of Twenty Twenty strong stronger relationships at every level of the Japanese and Chinese governments and there is a serious dialogue not least east because both countries face unpredictable. US Administration This time so the record with China is best and Eve.

"Yeah, that, that's the sort of way it goes. And, and we saw the incident in the East China Sea, just a few days ago with the two navy. Ships almost kill lighting, but it's, it's that sort of situation, it's not, it's, it's not sending drone swarms, which frankly is what we dealing with here. I mean remember the, the voice over from the pilot on one of the videos, where he says the whole fleet of them. This is scary stuff if this sort of tack is, is being used and flying against off fleet now I would hope that if it's not extra terrestrial, it's hours. When you yes, it's, it's the leaf scary of, of all the options, it's still there would be a huge political scandal. But frankly, the other options are almost unthinkable in terms of the consequences now the Pentagon in the navy apparently have. You know, generated new reporting requirements for its pilots, what would have been the spearhead for that? Well, the, the navy statements make it very clear that Sinn leaving a date for it. They say since two thousand fourteen they has been a dramatic upsurge in the number of these unauthorized in kitchens. Interesting because, of course when we talk about some of these navy videos, we've seen most most of what's been discussed is back in two thousand and four the USS Nimitz incident, and we have the pilots on the rankled. We have one of the the radar. All right. Is on the radio. And in fact, just in the last couple of weeks. We've gone from two people being on the rank to about five on the rankled. So that's, that's an interesting development too. But yeah, the, the navy has basically said it's. This dramatic upsurge since two thousand fourteen and then fall as part of this effort to find out who the Hank's doing this, and, and stop them, they need more data on the not gonna get more data that pilots reluctant to come forward and report, which they do said pot of what the navy doing is aimed at the stigmatizing list, and encouraging their own people to come forward and speak out and get this on the record in the forties. And fifties Nick, the media kind of handled UFO stories pretty aggressively and they didn't make fun of most of the people then between the sixty. Seventies eighties nineties, two thousands. The media, I think thought UFO cases as being hysterical jokes. Now they seem to be taking it a little more seriously. Again. What's creating that turnaround? Well, I think it's. No, getting away from the fact that these things on going on in our aspects. And I think the, the other thing is the tag is getting so much better. When I say the tech, I'm here I am talking about Allah tag. If this was back in the fifties, the sorts of incidents you mentioned, I think, very often the pilot would come by with a story, and there would be some rate on data, but it would be inconclusive nowadays with the Multan tank -nology. I think what we have is a situation where the pilots do come forward. There's a whole raft of data that, that the military will have validating that now this would be made public. But, but obviously, it will be there, and there will be lots of, of in debt analysis that can be done. And as I say, I very much down at the public. We'll see much of that. But, but this is this is I think, what's taking it to the next level, the fact that they Enron monitoring equipment. Whether it's right off to lights, or, or other areas of, of data gathering is now so sophisticated that we are able to track things that previously might have escaped on notice.

No, I can't always get into detailed discussions about rules of engagement because they tend to be highly classified as you know, but to say I think it's, it's a question what we need to do with gathering information, not. No Tiene, surely engage with with weapons here. What does your gut tell you what the navy fighter pilots might have seen? I really don't know but they're all they're all very few options. And I think we've, we've pretty much the basis it is always a frankly about four options. This is some extrordinary sequence. All misperceptions by witnesses rate on glitch is looking in for red eras and things. And none of this is real in a physical sense. Highly unlikely, the navy statements pretty much say these, these orange Russians. I mean, the, the navy obviously have done the tailed analyses of this, that will be loss of data out, working from that they've not yet made public. So I think we can. Certainly take that off the table that just leaves three options. I think it's a foreign military. Which, which should scare the living daylights out of us. If that's the case. Absolutely. If, if Russia, China have developed something like that. The frankly would represent in, in aerospace technology than we are in a desperate situation because frankly our entire defense network has has been rained. It useless by this. I mean, whatever this is seems to be able to run rings around us. So, so that would be, whether it's Russia, China will some of the known state, Hank, frankly, see who that would be. So that's a scary option. I guess the least scary auction but it's still worrying, and it would be an absolute scandal. Is if it is another part of the US military documents I've kept secret blank project, somehow being being tested against the fleet. Maybe the, the secretly testing something against the navy, and, and maybe this all ties in with into service vinyl Ray and, and things I think it's. Unlike because frankly, I would have found out, somebody would have said something even if they didn't disclose the details of the programs themselves because someone would simply said, look this is just a make waves about this. The last thing anyone wants is, is this getting highlighted in the media, the way that happening if it's a blank project, you won't keep those things in the shadows. And so if you take that off the table, really we're only left with the all the auction. The think the unthinkable could it be extraterrestrial? Well, that's also possible to. So it's any one of those three, I would doubt if it's Russian or Chinese 'cause I don't think they would be in our airspace directly at this point. I think they'd probably want to keep it more secret. Don't you? Yes. I think that, that we see, I mean we, we know what Russian cushions look like as a Brit, for example. We, we see it all the time. They're doing it now with their own planes getting close to hours. Yeah. That, that's the sort of way it goes. And, and we saw the incident in the East China Sea, just a few days ago, with the two navy ships almost kill lighting, but it's, it's sort of situation. It's not it's, it's not sending drone swarms, which frankly is, is what we dealing with here.

How it differs from the first they're both dynamic, and I we have to deal with the idea that it was a bipolar world. Dan multiplayer player world right now. If I read you correctly, professor that was a fiction, then it's a fiction now, it's always been a multiplayer game. That's correct. But it was a very useful fiction because it meant that for example, preventing west Germany from going nuclear that was a US problem. It didn't force the Soviets to intervene. Okay. So even though it was a fiction. It was a very useful fiction. And there's many useful fictions. We keep today like the non-proliferation treaty that no countries will have nuclear weapons out of the five. We mentioned earlier the second nuclear age also has nationalism I nuclear ages defined ideology. Communism versus capitalism, more freedom versus tyranny, but today as I as I read your Paul, we have nationalism which has a variety of motives, and that it is very difficult to calculate in an looking at one particular state if you can use the same approach that you do want another state or another region of the world, John let's make this a little less abstract at no time in the Cold War during the Cuban missile crisis. For example, the United States take actions to put one million people US demonstrators on the mall in Washington DC in Times Square screaming for the blood of the Soviet intervention at no time to the Soviet Union. Did do that as well. They did put together artificial mobs to condemn the United States. But if you look back never during a USO via crisis. Now, why did this happen? Neither side wanted to get back into a corner that they couldn't get out. Most nuclear crisis in the Cold War. We're actually very short a few days to thirteen days something like that. But if you look at the second nuclear age, it's only too easy, and we've already seen it with China with India with Pakistan, even Israel in its own way, large mobs screaming for the blood of the other side ongoing right now in Asia about the conflict in the East China Sea with Japan and China, absolutely, right. And they strengthens the bargaining position of the country because they say, look our people are with us. But it's really dangerous. The image of the Cold War was radically different was sort of bloodless and emotionless ironic, given the credible destruction.

And I don't think it's really kind of recovered from that in many ways, certainly in terms of public attitudes popular attitudes. So I I think it's it's a it's it's a more from the South Korean perspective. They're a little bit more. If you like, you know, sober and realistic about their about China's big footprint in the area and its readiness to use it so economic clout to get its broader policy objectives because if you like the sanctions against some how create continue I think in terms of tourism group is still pretty much dried up from China and a variety of righty of other things at the same time, South Korea SARS, not long Asir. Now that South Korea is feeling always hot breath of larger countries around the area and economics, and that includes Japan as well and China, and they've tried to stay on it edge by now risking more innovating more if they can and getting out there into into new markets. I think. They feel under tremendous pressure right now. I mean, say the world does. But I think they feel under tremendous pressure right now from China and the economy looms, very large. That's why I think they're very happy to have the US free trade agreement improved. Trump version. Ratified. So there are a little bit more secure in that respect. But they watch I think with with great concern, the the US China relationship and the US commitment in the area. Speaking of China Japan relations. I think in some ways it's very similar to what he said about US China relations. There's some areas where relationship is good and others where it's problematic. Japan has been a tremendous beneficiary over the last thirty years of Chinese dramatic economic growth. Japanese firms have invested heavily in China and doing have been doing pretty well there. So there's an recently of huge increases in Chinese inbound tourism into Japan, I think last year not just Chinese, but there was a total of twenty four million tourists that can Japan, which is double the amount. It was five years earlier. Now, they set a new goal of thirty million inbound tourists and many of those will if they reach their goal will come from China. So that's on the plus side. But on the minus side, China, I'm sorry Japan. Does feel a threat from China's growing and robust security capabilities. Japan has a territorial dispute with China and the East China Sea they have territorial disputes with Korea and Russia as well. But the difference there is their disputes with Russia and Korea the other side occupies territory. So there's little they can do about the northern territories or about Dr. But in case of the Senkaku islands. They have administrative control and the Chinese are aggressively contesting that control. So that dispute is much more in the news in Japan. And I think just in general, the Japanese feel the threat of gradually becoming less relevant and more being forced to bow to Chinese will so far Japan's response has been to enhance it security ties with the United States. And I think there would be a desire to improve security relations with South Korea as well. So it's very much a mixed bag in the last year the. Prime minister Ave traveled to try to and I think that succeeded at least in restoring Japan China relations to the low level it was at four or five years ago. But I don't see a possibility of dramatic further improvement, given the pretty severe differences between the two sides. My last questions are coaching. We starting it's a bit technical and specific which really important. It's about the section to thirty two trade authority. Okay. Congress or concerns about hitting station was using provisions regarding national security, concerns and trade policy. So this restriction funds. Our national security and places tariffs on other export countries such as Korea. How do you think congress react to that? Well, I think you with such a to thirty two on steel and you saw a little bit of a pushback. Call if I mentioned Senator Toomey now who's on the Senate finance committee has expressed interest in and looking at this. I think with automotives this. This will hit more congressional districts than steel issue alone. And I think it will get given a lot of attention and some of negative toward the Trump approach on this. In the house. A lot of conversations I've had with Republicans in the house. They've been very critical of sexual to thirty two. Terrassa steel and aluminum, but they've been voicing your quietly among themselves sometimes with the Trump administration, but they've not been very publicly vocal on this as opposed to a few of the senators who have been more vocal. But I think the I think within the automotive section. Side of it. If that happens, I think it will be much more impactful, and I think they'll be more pushback. Fifty minutes for. Microphone microphone. Steve winters, independent consultant. I understand there's quite a polarization in South Korea. About between the conservatives, and maybe because the left liberal left is moan and his policies of the current government conservatives when I hear the people in DC speaking almost very much along the lines solely of the view of the conservatives to the south. So I I'm just wondering is there anybody in the previous congress or the new congress who actually is enthusiastic in any way about the policies of the moon regime, and then Secondly to follow up on professor Stevens remark about the economic squeeze on South Korea between China's technological advances. I think it's not just maybe left or whatever if you want to call them that is the conservatives do who are looking towards the north. But it's also the conservatives in the South Korean conglomerates, the chaebols family. So when Mon went to the north he brought the tables with him. So they're thinking of a kind of economic unification under some guys of the of the two states, not political and economic which will create a powerhouse in South Korea. Economically, the way German reunification, essentially, Europe and stave off the challenge from China. So it's not.

Japan's new defense guidelines highlight military ambitions

"Japan currently has an exclusively defense oriented, military, policy, and pacifist constitution. But now in the face of increased Chinese capability and aggression new guidelines of an issue, which may fundamentally change this. John Nelson right is a senior lecturer in East Asia at Cambridge University and an associate fellow at the Chatham house Asia program, John thanks for joining us this morning. The national defense program guidelines is a policy document that outlines the nation's defense objectives for the next decade. As such must address the new reality in the security landscape. And this was signed off today aircraft carriers seemed to be the most contentious part of this. Can you tell us what that contains? Yes. This is a commitment on the power to the Japanese government to reequip its existing destroys the clouds destroy to allow them to carry vertical takeoff aircraft in the past. They've used helicopters. And this is raise concerns and some quarters of this is effectively the beginning, Japan acquiring aircraft carriers the equivalent the government has been keen to challenge that association and the language that's being used describing these as so-called multi-purpose operation destroys reflects, I think sensitivity in Japan, and in the wider region about this enhancement of Japan's capabilities, but enhancement undoubtedly is these ships will not only have the capacity to be equipped with f thirty five fifth generation fighter planes purchased from the United States. But also, I understand. There will be some possibility that American planes might be deployed on these ships at some point. So there's no doubt that Japan is increasing its whose production capabilities, and it's increasing its digital work in a more flexible fashion with the United States to deal with the growing challenge particularly of China in the region. US driven. I mean aside from Trump's buy America policy Japan has a security treaty with the US which involves Japan providing defense in the US maintain strike capabilities. But I mean, neither in the present. At the present time have the firepower necessary to counter China the distance. This is why these these multipurpose vessels a needed. Is that correct? That's right. I mean, I think this is dealing with the basics reality. China's increasing defense capabilities in the East China Sea where of course, Japan and China have a territorial dispute over the so-called son, Cinco de L U islands. But also more broadly in the South China Sea. Where course, we know the China has been acquiring aggressive force protection capabilities. And of course, building its own out Fisher reefs as a means of asserting its maritime, dominance, Japan is worried about this. They point to China itself of courses, acquiring a aircraft. Carrier all of this. In addition with other elements in the national defense program guidelines designed to increase power capabilities not just aircraft carriers, but the acquisition acquisition of long range hypersonic missiles, all of this. I think is an attempt to deal with that basic news to TJ reality. Whether we should be concerned about it. I think is another question. Japan's defense constitution remains in place. Although prime minister, of course, is looking to revise it. And the attitude on the part of public opinion and critically, of course, other parties in Japan opposition parties and the government's own coalition partner. Komeito remain still very cautious validating the challenges that basic normative commitment to defensive security policy. Is the US in driving this? Well, the US is under Donald Trump. Of course, it has multiple objectives. You mentioned, of course, the economic relationship. That's hugely important. Mister obey is under real pressure from Donald Trump to sign a bilateral trade agreement. He's reluctant to do that. He's concerned that this will open up pressure on Japan to open up Integra, cultural sector, and as part of that we've seen in this new defense policy from Japan a commitment to buy American one hundred thirty five fighter planes at one hundred million dollars a piece that's a huge commitment in terms of financial outlays on the part of the Japanese government. The hope in Tokyo, this will offset some of that pressure from Donald Trump, whether willow not of course is another question.
