Japan Urges Greater Chinese Transparency On Military Plans

From AFP:

Japan urged China Saturday to be more transparent about its military capabilities and step up dialogue with its neighbours to enhance regional security.

“Japan does not subscribe to purposely overstating China as a threat,” Japanese Defence Minister Shigeru Ishiba said in an address to an international security forum in Singapore.

“At the same time, we would like to urge China to further enhance the transparency of its military capabilities and their purpose,” he added at the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual meeting of security officials and experts.
