That history should not repeat: Hiroshimas storytellers

"Seventy, five years ago, this week, the B twenty, nine, bomber, Nola gay dropped little boy, the world's first use of an atomic weapon. At Eight fifteen in the morning of August six Japanese time. The first atomic thumb has done enemy talk. It detonated over. Hiroshima immediately killing around one hundred and forty. Thousand People I'm was aimed to explode about zero point. In the city at the junction of. Untold River. Three days later, another stroke sake. As Japan marks the anniversary, it hopes to keep the wartime memories alive using the stories of people who survived the attacks. On all. Holland. But the average age of survivors is now over eighty three. But those. This'll be the last chance to hear from those witnesses during a major anniversary. August sixth nineteen forty five was supposed to be a day off for seventeen year old. Takeo to Toco. No Snyder is the economists Tokyo Bureau chief. She had made plans to meet two girlfriends at eight fifteen owning at a train station on the west side of Shema. She was running late, and then she stepped outside, she saw flash and heard a bang. Which you regained consciousness, she found herself lying thirty meters away a mushroom cloud rising over the city. People with charts skin peeling from their arms rushing over a nearby hillside. Mr K. Ohka left's to look for her mother. and. Found rivers filled with bodies took her six days to locate her mom who is still miraculously alive. Mom lived for another twenty two years. We stuck ohka became a prominent voice amongst the hypocrisy shower, atomic bomb survivors, atomic sufferers. Telling Her story abroad many times in hopes of preventing atomic bombs from ever being used again. I heard this tale from her daughter. He got no. Mario. Who's part of a fascinating unique project underway in both your Sima Nagasaki to help preserve the stories, of Hypoxia, for generations to come to, how does this project work? So there are still some hundred and thirty thousand living. inbox. Amiss. Gone. But their average age is now over eighty three and the number who can tell their stories publicly is declining drastically. Just. You got the fact that could have done this. So the city government's in both fishermen sake have been recruiting scores of volunteers like music Otieno to become what they call dense Shosha or legacies successors. These are essentially memory keepers, people who learned the stories of the hypoxia down to the most gruesome details in order to be able to retell them with power and veracity for years into the future do. So the volunteers in, Hiroshima, have to go through a rather rigorous course, three years of study training discussion with hypoxia before they're allowed to retell the stories in public. Ms Higashi, no is somewhat unusual in that. She inherited own story, most of the Dan Shosha, take on a stranger's burden. And it simply because that's that generation of of survivors passing that the these city governments have started this program. Yeah, it is. It's really reflective of the anxiety that many people in here, C.`mon, Nagasaki and throughout Japan feel about fading wartime memories I'm what will happen. Once this generation firsthand witnesses passes away the city governments and the peace museums. Atomic bomb museums in both cities have been collecting and recording testimony for many years. But this then social program is away, they hope to preserve these memories in living form to retain the emotional impact. The comes from searing these stories from another human being. and. So where does this fit in with the the wider of up the bombing of of the war in Japan? For Japan, the Hiroshima Experience became central to wartime memory and park has some scholars have argued because it allows victim narrative to dominate shifting the focus away from the atrocities Japanese soldiers committed abroad in Asia and the Pacific certainly oaks in China and Korea have bristled at the lack of context that some of the retailing's of the aroma and Nagasaki experiences or trey. and. If you look at Japan today, it's of course, wrestling a new with the legacy of the Second World War and its aftermath in particular the constitution that America imposed on Japan after the war, which renounces war bars Japan from maintaining armed forces. In practice, Japan does maintain a powerful military which it calls the Self Defense Forces and its Prime Minister Obey Shinzo years has hoped to change the constitution to revise the constitution in order to make explicit that Japan's military is constitutional and and perhaps to expand the limits of what they're allowed to do. Curiously, the public still supports maintaining the postwar constitution. So in short pacifism is still deep seated in today's Japan. and. What about the the the effort of auction others to to learn the lessons of the second. World War d? How does nuclear non-proliferation look at this stage from where you are. Well. This is another source for concern. Of course, non-proliferation efforts in recent years have been faltering just this January. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. It's doomsday clock. It's subjective measure of our proximity to self-annihilation closer to midnight than anytime since its establishment in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, the hawks are are pleased and take solace in the signing of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in two, thousand, seventeen, it invokes there unacceptable suffering in its preamble and a nod to how the memory of interesting Nagasaki continues to shape non-proliferation efforts globally yet at the same time, no country with nuclear weapons has signed up to that treaty neither has Japan in fact, which shelters under America's nuclear umbrella. And, and how does that sit with Hypoxia at this stage at this anniversary being marked. I spoke with US Akihiko the governor of the prefecture, and he expressed the view that I heard from many others both your seem sake, which was a wish that Japan would use its moral authority as the only victim of atomic weapons to push harder for their abolition. The hypocrisy. Have Long gramps and spoken about abolishing the bomb before the last houses away. Just to make the do. You call. You can. That's unlikely. But the hypocrisy hope that their stories at the very least. Deter the world from ever using his weapons again. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you very much for having me.

World Cup fever in Kamaishi, Japan

"Japan is in the midst of Rugby World Cup favor and when the home nation Bait Island last week gained fans went crazy and in remote promotional based in Japan in the town of Camera Itchy the Rugby World Cup has been so much more than just a sporting contest because the town was devastated dated by the March Twentieth Nami but it was an incredibly special moments when they held a rugby World Cup match there on North Asia correspondent the Jake stomach was in the stands to get to comply you take two and a half hour bullet train from Tokyo and then it's another hour's drive after to that it doesn't sound like too much travel but in Japan that's pretty remote. This town was almost what the map from the match twenty eleven unearth quake and soon nami around one thousand people died there during the recovery locals came up with the idea of trying to host a rugby World Cup matches. She has a way to lift spirits and motivate. The town remarkably die one beating many of the biggest cities with established stadiums. When I arrived in camera she was Sunday night to nose looking to find a bar that was showing the Rugby World Cup unheard. This town was rugby mad. It dominated the national. Oh competition in the nineteen eighties and ever since it's been an important part of this area's history a small restaurant with people huddled around television the unassuming staring from the outside and invited us in a World Cup match was on. It just happened to be women's. Volleyball in Japan was taking on the United States Steitz. It was a great game by just the one I was looking to watch any why is that Tokyo Bureau producer and I sat down for a B. and bought too late. We got talking with some of the locals everyone he has a story to tell about the to Nami and what the Rugby World Cup mains to them one one of the main in the bar owned the construction company that built the temporary stands in the new stadium he became emotional while explaining how important the game would be into the town he told us about cleaning up the piles of debris and taking care of dead bodies with the US Marines that came to help another told us the story of how one of the pilots in the Japanese Air Self Defense Forces elite aerial unit known as the Blue Impulse had come from this area he would be participating sitting in a flyover on the day of the match for Doc on Game Day. I there was a huge buzz and excitement around the stadium. We were there to cover the story for seven thirty in particular the story of former Wallaby Scott Fatty he was playing with the local chemi she rugby team on the day of the Tanaman in he was returning for these special moment the US anything like this would have been enough people could have on think to think I use the world's the world's main spice and everyone's GonNa say today. I am going to watch television images. Yeah Good Razer not tragic initial you about this. I never covered the soon Nami or immediate aftermath like most I watched on television the powerful and chilling pictures of the wall of water wiping out this coastline that I felt an enormous privilege being in this town for the special moments and hearing the stories of the locals and what they'd overcome five hundred ninety people died the stadium had been rebuilt and while well not everyone was happy about that decision in the end. I decided to build something that would be positive for the town's recovery. The game itself lived up to expectations -tations with Uruguay defeating Fiji in a major upset thirty to twenty seven but this moment really wasn't about the result on the white into the the stadium locals gave out handmade tissue cases with a message thanking people for coming to the game. The note inside said we were saved a lot of support what from people all over the world during the march eleven disaster. We've finally recovered to this point. Thank you for coming. I think for many the tissues inside side would have come in handy and that's our north Asia correspondent Jake's termer.

"May fall sometime. The US has had various voices. Make comments on China talks. Sometimes it is said that an agreement will be reached soon. Sometimes that it is difficult to reach an agreement. However, in the same period of time, China's position has always been the sea. The generally speaking of the two main issues affecting this region right now. Of course, the China trade dispute and also North Korea both of those issues. Don't Trump is willing to wait right now. He said on North Korea. I'm happy the way it's going to hasn't been nuclear test in a couple of years, the sanctions are still in place. No hurry now this morning, Donald Trump before he started flying back to the United States. He went down to your coats. Good. Naval base, he visited us troops and also Japanese Self Defense Forces sailors, aboard two different warships. One, the largest of the Japanese wet helicopter carriers. The Kaga, then he also went aboard the US wasp similarly, designated ship. It was a Memorial Day address. This is a key issue as well in Japan with Shinzo Ave trying to revise the pacifist constitution, Donald Trump yesterday as well, supporting Japan and Shinzo Avas efforts to better. Protect itself, given those external threats being North Korea as well as China's rise in East China Sea. Thank you very much for that. That's our teeth north Asia. Correspondent Stephen Engle. Let's bring in Chris west. And he's the head of research at pepper stolen financial joins us from Melbourne, Chris. How do you read into these latest developments? Mean is this just a matter of posturing, or is the US China relationship in much deeper trouble than it was three or four weeks ago? He reads, what's happening in the global times in China. Some of the social media train one could make the argument that data's getting further and further away. And the public perception is, especially on the ground in China is one of Roy's anti Americanism and potentially I might show I wife from coach of US products. So one could be probably going some white feather ally. But my opinion mulcahy's will probably being a holding pattern around this volatility, shouldn't kick up too much as we go into the twenty s we go into that public decision around the twenty-five percent tariffs on this extra three hundred billion, and then all of a sudden, not get rolled out to the j twenty K diet up until that point. I think we'd probably going to get in a bit of a holding pattern. We've had a lot of negative news on the ground in showing Donald Trump coming out with similar retro loss snowing. Of course, you wouldn't is supposed to do that in the run-up to g twenty you look at dollar Yuan. Also. And you look at socks which is the Philly semiconductor index you're going to use these as what had you going to buy you on into that. You're going to buy into that. We don't really looking at global proxies of what's happening in try because Cain to boy, but going, very, very difficult to them all kit, west central banks, pretty much designed to suppress volatility, but we all using NASA's proxies to understand public perception, never sucks. The semiconductor index has come under social pressures come with twenty percent since I pulled the actual semiconductor sales have been decimated. Pretty hauled mumps. There are a couple of months lacking. Yeah. We all watching it that as as a proxy. I think paper that being shown tonight, index readily saying, why say nights just being how wiping plying this, but I think the risk reversals have come back to a mo- new on style. So I think no Malky sign it probably the one way trade is over there, we can't look at the AUSSIE dollar is proxies as well. But I think ultimately an environment. Oh, central banks have come to a much more. Flexible situation, the right small could have come to all of a sudden aggressive dovish positioning. Boeing facility, and then these proxies and not going to carry much whites in environment. Chris, it's clear that the market is holding its breath, another chart tells the story of a rush to save save a safe haven assets. GT gopher, our clients, basically, you've got US treasury yields breaking through a key, technical level and the Bank of America, Merrill, Lynch, says that opens it pass up for more downside below the two hundred day moving average. Where does that trade go from Chris? Well, we know looks being pushed into right, small kits the Fronton to the treasury. Obviously pricing in then that's the case in a lot of other countries in j ten as well. But one of the things we all concerned balances this as, as the markets have been quite cushioned because of global trade, and heaven forbid, we get a situation where inflation in the US transitory. We say co PC coming out this way. And if they try tariffs, I, she stopped becoming inflation rate, the, the, and we start saying that ROY, I think that's where we start saying volatility kick up, we don't say a situation went from ten years. So any part of the cubs sales of to aggressively. Heaven forbid, say a situation where inflation and inflation expectations Roy's more than what we're looking for and the fate. Of course, he haven't really been exploring the idea of right? Caught somewhat could promote right cuts. Start turning a little bit more whole thing that's going to happen. But that is a real risk. And if we do that, then I think equities have to try much lower in that situation as much high risk premium. Can we just talk about the reaction function from the Chinese side? And the Bloomberg intelligence, folks. I've written a piece of included, Sean, it's on unemployment, it tires kick, and we go to old tires, the risk is this is that the small exporters in China are the ones that are going to get hit with that lane of people, and this is a massive focus for leaky. China massive unemployment is the risk the question becomes then. Hi, is the ball to another triple cut from that. PBOC. What's side quantum of trip laws mightly expect as a reaction function in all tariff wars thing for the moment. What we've been saying? He's the as I say. Playing around in ten funding. We've saying issue in Sydney, and, and that's pretty big with five Chris. But if we get to a situation where phone conditions until I nothing that's been part of the reason why that being coconut not to let the you on. We can say much they want to incentivize capital outflows, which, of course, could cause a rapid tightening phone conditions who've been the Chinese economy. That's what we're going to see that better to trade in the renminbi. But I think if we say is financial conditions toy, you've got eyes things on the Bloomberg financial conditions indices, and various factors there, then. Yeah. I think that's going to have to be a situation where they'd be looking at one hundred basis points fell easily coming off the reserve ratio by which banks lending. We've seen that time and time again in, in the first cool to wear coming cut rights. And I looked album, liquidity facilities, and it's filtered didn't say, MTA money supply pretty quickly. The credit impulses change pretty quickly and it's fed into the real economy, but it dissipates quite quickly at the same time as well. So what's the ball? Well, I think it's above fifty percent probability that we're going to see that three hundred billion being priced at twenty percents, and then it really comes into this tech Cold War, which people have been libeling how further the guy. So I think the tariffs this tariff guys up, then next question if the protectionist measures, which play through you have how much should the Chinese going to hold off from Boeing apple products, for example, how much what happens to the hallway types, and everyone's fight tech, which is going to come.

"Sometime. The US has had various voices made comments on China US talks. Sometimes it has said that an agreement will be reached soon. Sometimes that it is difficult to reach an agreement will, however, in the same period of time. China's position has always been the we, we up. The generally speaking use of the two main issues affecting this region. Right now, of course, the China trade, spew dispute and also North Korea, both of those issues, Donald Trump is willing to wait right now. He said on North Korea. I'm happy, the way it's going there hasn't been a nuclear test in a couple of years, the sanctions are still in place. No hurry now this morning, Donald Trump before he started flying back to the United States. He went down to your coats. Good naval base, he visited us troops and also Japanese Self Defense Forces, sailors, aboard two different warships. One the largest of the Japanese, what helicopter carriers the Kaga, then he also went aboard the USS wasp, a similarly, designated ship. It was a Memorial Day address. This is a key issue as well in Japan with Shinzo Ave trying to revise the pacifist constitution, Donald Trump yesterday as well, supporting Japan and chins obvious efforts to better protected. Itself given those external threats being North Korea as well as China's rise in these China Sea. Or as we leave it there. Thank you very much for that. That's our teeth north Asia. Correspondent Stephen Engle. Let's bring in Chris west. And he's the head of research at Penn persona financial joins us from Melbourne, Chris. How do you read into these latest developments? Mean is this just a matter of posturing, or is the US China relationship in much deeper trouble than it was three four weeks ago? If you read what's been happening in the global times, and showing some of the social media trains, from one could might the they the data's getting further and further away. And the public perception is, especially on the ground in China Roy's anti Americanism and potentially it on my show. I wife from purchases of US products going with someone could all agree that there's probably going somewhat further away. But my opinion is that markets will probably being a holding pattern around this volatility, shouldn't kick up too much as we go into the twenty s we go into that. That, that, that public decision around the twenty five percent tariffs on this extra three hundred billion, and then obviously, that get rolled out to the j twenty that she k- Deitz up until that point. I think we'd probably going to gain a bit of a holding pattern. We've obviously a lot of negative news on the ground in showing her Donald Trump coming out with similar rhetoric. We had lost noise. Chris, you would spies view that in the run-up to g twenty you look at dollar Yuan offshore and you look at salts, which is the Philly semiconductor industry. You're going to use these as what had you going to buy you on into that. You're gonna walk by Philly into that. We don't know ready. So I'm looking at global proxies off what's happening in try, because, you know, I'm Cain to boy, VO, but going follows very, very, very difficult to them all kit, west central banks, pretty much designed to suppress volatility, but we all using NASA's as proxies to understand public perception. Now, the socks semiconductor index has come under sauce, refreshes come up twenty percent since I it proved, but the actual semiconductor sales have been decimated. Pretty hard. Mumps. There are a couple of months lacking. Yeah. We all watching it that as as a proxy. I think people that being shouting at index readily saying why saying just being how whipping plying this, but I think the risk reversals have come back to a more new on starts. I think they're Malky signed that probably the one way tried his over there. We can have a look at the AUSSIE dollar is proxies as well. And but I think ultimately in an environment where central banks have come to a much flexible situation, the right small could have come to all of a sudden aggressive, dovish positioning, Boeing phone, Tillotson, and these proxies and not going to carry much whites in that environment. Chris, it's clear that the market is holding its breath, another chart tells the story of a rush to save save safe haven assets. GT go for our clients. Basically, you've got US treasury yields breaking through a key technical level and the Bank of America. Merrill, Lynch says that opens it pass up for more downside below the two hundred day moving average. Where does that trade go from Chris? Well, we know lots being priced into right smoke. It's the Fronton to the treasury curve is obviously pricing in quite a lot certain and that's the case in a lot of other countries in j ten as well. But one of the things we all concerned about is this, these markets have been quite cushioned because of global trade, and heaven forbid, we get a situation where inflation in the US is not transitory. If we say co PC coming out this week, and if they tried tariffs, I, she stopped becoming inflation rate at the mall, and we start saying that don't arise, I think that's where we start saying volatility kick up, we don't say a situation where from ten years, or any of the cubs sales of to aggressively. But heaven forbid, we say a situation where inflation, and inflation expectations Roy's more than what we're looking for, and the fate, of course, he hasn't really been exploring the idea of right? Caught somewhat could promote right cats start turning a little bit more whole, and I think that's going to happen. But that is a real risk. And if we say that, then I think equities have to try it much lower in that situation as I wear a much higher premium. Can we just talk about the reaction function from the Chinese side? The Bloomberg intelligence, folks have written a piece of included, John, it's on unemployment, if tires really kick, and we go to all tires, the risk is this is that the small exporters in China are the ones that are going to get hit with that lane of people. And this is a massive focus for leaky, giant massive unemployment is the risk the question becomes then. How high is the ball to another triple or Cup from the PBOC? What's signed a quantum of triple ause might we expect as a reaction function in all tariff wars. Well, I think for the moment, what we've been saying. He's the is playing around in the show. Ten funding markets. We've seen issue in Sydney, and, and that's pretty with five Chris. But if we get to a situation where financial conditions do. So. I think that's been part of the reason why that bathing Kokusai not. So let you on. We can say much they want to incentivize capital outflows, which, of course, could cause a rapid tightening financial conditions have been the Chinese economy. That's what we're going to see that Betsy. Why trade and the renminbi? But I think if we do see is financial conditions do Tyson. And of course, we've got our eyes on things on the Bloomberg financial conditions indices, and various factors there, then. Yeah. I think that's going to have to be a situation where they'll be looking at one hundred basis points fell easily coming off the reserve ratio by which banks lending. We've seen that time and time again in, in the first quarter where like coming cut rights, and I looked liquidity facilities, and it's filtered into Mt money supply pretty quickly. The credit impulses. Change pretty quickly and it's fed into the real economy, but it dissipates quite quickly at the same time as well. So what's the ball? Well, I think it's at above fifty percent probability that we're gonna see that three hundred billion being priced at twenty five percents. And then it really comes into the tech Cold War, which people have been libeling, how further cannot guy, so I think the tariffs tariff guys up, then it's a question if the protectionist measures which play through. Yeah. How much should the Chinese going to hold off from buying apple products, for example, how much what happens to the hallway and everyone's fight tech, which is going to come back to the, you know, the Celtics index? Yep. Well, sometimes, we're hearing a lot of references tip, perhaps, and enduring cold agreement done at the twenty. Chris, stay focused on the Bloomberg.

"The relationship between Australia and Japan is growing meets Rausing instability in the Asia Pacific region security and trade tensions between the US and China a leaving ustralia and Japan somewhat caught in the middle ustralia and Japan are hoping to solidify deeper strategic ties with negotiations inching Ford over a new defense agreements, vast defense experts warning that should not be seen as a precursor to a full alliance, nor should the relationship heading in that direction north Asia. Correspondent Jake's termer reports from Tokyo, this is one of the most challenging times in the ustralia Japan relationships since World War Two the US is relationship with China is increasingly turbulent and Washington's economic rivalry with Japan to is leading to uncertainty in Tokyo, it's an opportunity for a stra in Japan to move closer together showing by the recent visit of prime minister Shinzo Ave to Darwin with his counterparts. Scott morrison. It was an historic trip has the two leaders paid their respects at the Dow on Senator Jeff it was the first visit of Japanese Prime minister to Darwin since the country bombed the ustralian city in World War Two both countries are putting their wartime rivalries behind them working on a new defense agreement that will make it easier for these straddling defense force and Japanese Self Defense Force to work together. Professor John Blaxland is the head of the Estrella national university's strategic and defence studies center. There is underway. The negotiation for the reciprocal excess agreement which is akin to a status of forces agreement to to expedite and facilitate rapid and same Lewis interoperability of Japanese and destroy in defense force elements in Japan or in astrology or wherever we might be. Based in response to a crisis like this NAMI the Indian Ocean. So NAMI, the typhoons of the Philippines. The Fukushima disaster in Japan where Australian C seventeens flew in equipment and struggled to get it off board because of administrative procedures that had not been agreed upon beforehand. So there are things that can be done negotiations over the agreements have been going on for years, and the ABC has loaned that discussions are now focusing on the legal status of strategy and troops in Japan. It's a sensitive issue for Tarquinio because of several recent issues with US troops stationed in the country. There are around fifty thousand American troops in Japan at several bases. And there are tensions stemming from a series of aircraft accidents and serious crimes in two thousand sixteen the murder of a woman was linked to an ex marine employed at one of the bases which led to a temporary ban on alcohol as well as midnight curfew, but the big difference between the US and destroyer in Japan is that they won't be a permanent base. And while. In Tokyo, talk about a quasi alliance. Professor John Blaxland says don't expect this reciprocal access agreement to turn into a full alliance. Are we talking about a security guarantee, whereby Australia promises to come to Japan's aid not that never gonna happen? And the reasons for that because of the Cinco jar you on who you ask all the doctoral, the duck duck Asieme issues, they are bilateral disputes between Japan and Korea, and Japan and China, they're not ones Australia has an interest in becoming involved in and nor does his trial. You have an interest in giving Japan a sense that it will give support should Japan feel like being more aggressive towards Korea or China other either of those disputes so strategy is never gonna go. The I don't believe. There is clearly utility in astrology end Japan collaborating, all the more effectively in our neighborhood on a whole range of issues. And if that generates a sense of unease among somebody who might want to challenge, Japan or ustralia, then that might be a useful byproduct form, a US marine, Colonel grant Newsome says closer ties between Austria, and Japan are a good thing some ways, it's even better to have Japan and Australia operating on their own rather than this Roach reliance on the United States. Plus, the United States is hard. Pressed doesn't have enough resources to cover the entire world. There's also a political psychological aspect to see the Japanese and the Australians out in about amid the global uncertainty. It's not a bad idea to Cape. Good friends close.

They've had a similar problem. Knifing working with. Yes, she Kyoto who's a Japanese producer and the fans they the very passionate fans. Decided that he was completely unacceptable and they've had the song removed from the upcoming Japanese album in these issues do come up. He was deemed to be a right winger. They didn't like his views. They also felt he was himself. But it's no on heard of this to happen. It's hard to imagine that the soothing sounds of k pop couldn't heal this kind of political divide.

"Is twelve thirty in here in London. Here is what else is making news today. The former president's off the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev says Donald Trump's plan to withdraw from a key Cold War nuclear weapons street is a reversal of efforts to achieve nuclear disarmament Gorbachov who signs the original treaty says. The US presidents plans are politically motivated. Brazil's leading presidential candidate is joined Ables. Denaro says he intends to use the country's military to maintain law and order in the country. The far right politician who also served as an army captain says, he will discuss the idea with his cabinet if he wins this month's presidential race. And today's wanna go minutes reports on the opening of the world's longest. Zee bridge. The impressive structure which is more than fifty kilometers in length will connect Hong Kong to Macau and Xue Hai, which is a neighboring city on the Chinese mainland. Those are some headlines we're following today on monocle twenty four. Japan and South Korea hill to bilateral ministerial talks over the weekend. The meeting came as Seoul and Tokyo traded barbs over Japan's arising sun flag. Let's get the latest on this with John Nielsen right? Who associate lecturer in modern Japan at Cambridge University. John welcome to the program. Could you first recap this latest issue, straining relations between these two countries? It's about sills call for Tokyo, not to fly the rising sun flag which was also used during the second World War. Yes. I mean, this is about a month ago joined exercising which the Japanese maritime Self Defense Forces would you to participate the requirement from Seoul that the flag note be flied by jeopardy's vessels was met with opposition from the Japanese government that felt that this was a step too far and it costs. It comes on the back of. Increase friction between Seoul and Tokyo over a number of issues. I'm not just a question of the rising rising sun flag which is seen as a distinct reminded ordinary South Koreans of the colonial period, but also disputes over the status of so-called comfort. Women says, Korean women were recruited as sex slaves by the Japanese military in the wartime period, a broader issues. Disputes over territory ultimately will of this comes back to the history question, which remains a source of tension. But I think this issue of the rising sun flag is particularly worrisome because the North Koreans have injected themselves into the process applauding. So for its decision to to in effect by making this Domon preclude Japan from participating in these important portent joint maritime exercises. Could you explain why this is suing voice? Japan still insisting. Flying this rising on flag dust, Tokyo understands how Koreans perceive the meaning of this flag. Well, I think they do, but at the same time, this is not this isn't something new. This is something that the maritime Self Defense Forces has routinely done in the post will period. It doesn't represent what you might see as a step backwards or an attempt to make a political statement. But by highlighting this, this has Koreans have inevitably politicized something, and I suppose ultimately, this is about state sovereignty, what's considered legitimate? It's is, of course wrapped up in this pruder discussion about history. The South Korean president moon Jae-in recently made it very clear that he has plans to spend a special foundation set up to deal with the issue of comfort women that has become problematic because back in two thousand fifteen prime minister Abay and then South Korean leader, president pock decided to reach an agreed. -ment on resolving the comfort women issue. So many people in Japan, both in the government and in society more generally, the perception that the South Koreans re reneging on this agreement has been seen as a step backwards. It's all of course happening. Importantly in this year, the twentieth anniversary of an important set of bilateral talks in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight between then south Korean President, Kim Dae, Joan. I'm prime minister, Japanese Prime minister Obuchi that was an attempt to get beyond the history issue. It was very important agreement. This twentieth anniversary was seen as an opportunity just a week or so ago to up move forward into reemphasize imports of collaboration..

"You know, the traditions in the Japanese maritime Self Defense Force as it is now called at one time was the imperial navy. A lot of that there's a lot of connection with the Royal Navy, and I think there's a quite a strong feeling of they understand the way each other work. And in fact, that was said yesterday, the MSG f, one of the commander said, no, we, it's very easy to do these drills with the role navy. You know, we don't have to have a lot of talks beforehand, so I think it's a fairly smooth operation. And actually, I think for you know, the u k, it's also a chance to say to Japan. What about defense contracts in the future? Japan, pretty much since the occupation has only been buying American technology American planes. So it's pointing out that, you know, you have a huge defense industry and maybe Japan would like to start buying some of their equipment. That's a long term goal. But I think in the short term, it's more symbolic. Than anything. Well to that long-term goal finish. Interesting. You made that point and there's a lot of speculation oversee here in the u. k. about strategic alliances, whether their defense procurement based or actually military strategic alliances. And of course, with half an eye on one imagines is the post Brexit future. Do you think that could be a degree of that from the UK mini suggest ready? They're looking to restate that strategic partnership. Yeah, I think it's all of those things. I think the sort of business side of it is one aspect, but I think you're right strategic alliances. Important in this part of the world. China is very, very dominant. The US is the counterpoint that dominance. And I think it's a sort of triangle in a way, of course, the British military operations much smaller, but it's an alliance and it's aligning the UK with the US and Japan, the Royal Navy's also getting involved while it's here in monitoring how the, how the sanctions being imposed on North Korea. So that's another part of the operation. And in fact, this year they've had three different free. In Asia one after the other, which is very unusual. So they've had a ship in Asian water all year. And I think that's a also very symbolic move. We see it makes sense in with as this coherence between the two navies. What about the Japanese public as we've discussed on this program before about this recalibration, if you like of Japan's brought a military strategy away from this of self defense to something more assertive, is the public too clearly sort of, do they follow these sorts of maneuvers with great deal of interest? Are they comfortable with what they say? They don't follow it great attention to the detail. But I think what people have noticed is that the defense spending has gone up seven years in a row hair, and this year is it was is forty. Eight billion is what the government has requested and they want to buy a lot more. It's a sort of incremental increase. It's very, very tricky subject in and it's not really spoken about that widely. It's reported on, but I think people are not particular where they might notice next week they're going to be some drills actually. In Japan. The British army has got fifty soldiers. He'll be training with the Japanese Self Defense Force. The Ground Self-Defence was I think that will attract a bit of attention because quite an unusual side, I mean, extremely unusual. It's never happened. It was supposed to happen in August, and there was a Thai food and they had to cancel. And I think that people relate to bit more because actually on Japanese territory, indeed, Fiona, great spooky is always that was off your new Wilson in Turkey. Oh, and here's what else is making news today. Republicans say, there should be a vote on bread, Kavanagh's nomination for the US supreme court today and follows dramatic testimony from Cavanaugh and the woman who's accused him of sexual assault. Lawyers say, the vote should be delayed until Christine. Blasi Ford's claims are investigated. There are reports that representatives from the Taliban have held clandestine talks with the Afghan government in Saudi Arabia. Taliban officials say that the meeting was convened to discuss security ahead of next month's parliamentary elections and the release of prisoners. And finally, the Monaco minute reports that the outdoor clothing company will rich is undergoing a major reinvention..

"Seem that Shinzo Ave is time at the Japanese. Politics was coming to an end modern cronyism claims battling to reform Japan's pacifist constitution. It seem that his Midas touch had faded, but reports of his political death tend to be rather premature. He is comprehensively wanna party leadership vote. Hold out. The prospect them is to could break the record for the longest serving Japanese Prime Minister, John Nelson right? Is senior lecturer in East Asia Cambridge University, and associate fellow in the Asia program at the think tank Chatham house and he's on the line. Now a given all the problems that Shinzo Abby has faced. How did he manage to win this vote, this convincingly. I think principally because the party Benton, the p five out of the seven factions stayed loyal to Mr. Abay mister his only rival the only other contestant in this contest, former defense minister. She issue did pretty poorly in that LDP share of the vote, but actually did relatively well in the professional chapters provided forty and five at effectively half of the eight hundred votes that would being contested. Immensity indication that on local issues. Mr. obvious, Pam notice strong as some people might have thought. So. While he has well, he has won this vote. He needs to move relatively quickly to cement his position, get if you get a few wins on his boat, I think so you'll be looking to identify number of areas where I think he thinks he can. He can capitalize on his success. The issue that matters most to him, which is being really at the heart of his whole political identity is constitution revision. He wants to change in particular article, nine to give an explicit reference to the Self Defense Forces, which hasn't been formally coda fide in the document, but it's it's a, it's a big hurdle to get over because he needs to thirds win in both houses of the Japanese diet and support in a national referendum. And while the it self is pretty strong in both houses in the upper house, it doesn't. It does not have two-thirds majority and we'll have to bring them board a coalition Komeito. It's not clear that Mr.. They can do that and looking ahead to next summer when it will be election for the upper house, it's likely the LDP will see it support rate decline. In which case, the issue of cost us for vision becomes much hotter. Popular opinion is very divided. So on the one issue that matters most to him, missed Ave is going to find himself facing difficulties that bending just well, what about the economy economy is doing actually quite well, but there is some big structural problems. The huge deficit. The Japan has the country's demographic problems. The fact that many is of loose monetary policy has made precious. It'll impact on the issue of deflation, which of course is a key question Makishi if the government's going to be able to persuade people to actually stop spending. And so this little Ave can do except to keep the economic ship estate moving in the same direction. Big changes are going to be very difficult. And yet, despite all those problems..

Mr. Trump is preparing for a second meeting with Kim Jong UN after receiving a message from North Korea's leader.

And she told reporters a military parade and Pyongyang on Sunday was a sign of progress in talk Sunday nuclearization because it did not feature any long range nuclear missiles. The whole thing so screwy. Because Kerry, we can't really get into the mind at this guy. Can we know? Thanks. So we can't really know what Kim Jong is thinking can we know? They call it. The what do they call it the hermit nation or something the hermit capital the hermit something? But we know nothing about the inner workings of North Korea. We can't even begin to fathom what the beep is going on in North Korea. The fact that the president met with them. Had him signed something they walked around looked like cute was a little kid and the president was was the boss of the father. It was great progress. Do people really think we're going to snap our fingers, and that's it. It was just gonna shut everything off. And I'll give you anything you want. It's a process. It's interesting. Former President Obama who? Absolutely. I can compare the current president to because they're both presidents, and if you can't compare a president's job performance.

"Take a look at some of the stories making headlines across Asia. My guest in the studio this evening, David Slesinger his former editor-in-chief at roses and many other things expert on China. Thank you for coming in the evening. We'll start with Japan if we can. Now we, we've talked a lot on this program about Japan's attempts to reframe its constitution pacifist to allow it to have a more muscular defense posture and joining military exercises in the region. Yes. So the I was from the Japan Times about how Japan is going to be on a rare long-term joint exercise with the United States in the very difficult waters of the South China seas where have disputes with China. So I think this is very interesting case where Japan, which is a country that many nations in the region were frayed over originally for for good reason now is joining against the country that they're now afraid of, which is China. So it really show. How tensions can swirl, of course, as you mentioned, does play right into the debate within Japan domestically about what is the role of the Self Defense Forces? Should the constitution be changed? And certainly from Beijing's point of view, they don't want to see Japan and Washington together in the South China Sea, which Beijing really sees it as its sphere of influence. Interesting, China response to that because it has responded well to anybody else's taken an interest in South China say they're just so many disputes going on right now with Washington from trade to the personal animosity that seems to be developing Bua with Trump who has a dentist. China has the Mogi men at the moment, challenging the US supremos try to keep them down and possible. Now to have the military exercises with Japan where there's always been antipathy between Beijing in Tokyo could be quite interesting. Also, he said, this is. Exercises with the United States, but to what extent is possible? Japan is thinking, I think some of the country's probably are the US's perhaps a tiny bit less reliable defense partner now than it will say two or three years ago, and therefore you might need to develop your own forces anyway. Well, it certainly very good point under Trump the America. I, I, if you the idea that you take care of things at home, has many countries worried that the US will turn away from Asia as a region alive until yes, develop your own means of challenging. China stand up and don't just see the south Tennessee or the or the same calends del. You ties the Chinese call to to Beijing. Now, let's move to China. Now if optical that goes through the latest in the lettuce elements of the trade? Yes. I chose something from the global times which talks about deeper reform to become China's biggest bargaining chip, which I thought was interesting. I think that is really. Trying to tell its own people. Let's hunker down. Let's use this as an opportunity to really fundamentally change our economy from being outward focus to domestic consumption. There won't be a quick win. There won't be a quick end to this. Let's hunker down, uses an opportunity to make some fundamental changes to our economy, some of the reforms that are absolutely necessary. Now, whether they'll be able to do this without the pain from the tariffs really hurting the economy. That's a very difficult question to analyze the first tariffs come into force tomorrow actually think. The the US is putting in sixteen billion worth. China will respond for tat with that. But the US has said is going to come back with even more and China will very soon run out of countermeasures that can do. So perhaps the global times is right that concentrating on reforming the economy fundamentally doing the changes that need to be done to bring to the next level may be the best possible option for Beijing. Malaysia's prime minister went to Beijing, and we were hearing reports that he was set to move against the Belton road initiative could encounter some of the Radi big projects, how those conversations workout? Yes, that's a great story. So I chose something from the this has Tony posts about that because I think this story talks about many different issues. Number one, it exposes the fact that belt and road is not quite as easy as it might have appeared. I think the some of the cub. Belt route ten speak quite quite superficial either saying it's going to be a complete failure..

Absolutely. And I think the concerns are about. Out China already eroding the agreement into them fourteen, we had massive student protests, and that took place really to ask for more democracy. And for more freedom regarding the selection of the leaders of the Hong Kong meters, and those where completing crackdown on the leaders were convicted and jailed. Some of them have been elected since then in in positions and office, and their election was ruled no, by the Chinese and Hong Kong government. So it's clearly a very hot topic localism in in Hong Kong. However, I think the position of and each on Houghton is a bit more a bit too controversial for most Hongkong is, but he's symbol representation of something that is really, really contentious in Hong Kong or co moving along to Japan on the Yomiuri Shimbun.
