Pyongyang, October 24 (KCNA) -- Japan is rapidly emerging a nuclear weapons state under the signboard of "the Pacifist Constitution".
Now Japan has a stockpile of tremendous amount of plutonium and
enriched uranium enough to manufacture more than 5 000 nuclear bombs.
Amid increasing international concern and suspicion about Japan
going nuclear, the Chinese arms control and disarmament council and
academic organization jointly published a report on Japan's nuclear
materials and the Carnegie International Peace Foundation of the U.S.
also published an academic report on Japan's nuclear materials.
The reports cited facts to prove that Japan holds a stockpile of
sensitive nuclear substances, revealing the danger of nuclear
proliferation and threat to nuclear security.
Japan has the world's largest fuel reprocessing plant and has stored
50 tons of split plutonium for decades which mean astronomical figures
for the overwhelming majority of the countries in the world. It has
massively conducted study of modern nuclear technology including nuclear
fusion and high-speed neutron reactor and has purchased, stored and
extracted a huge amount of nuclear substance.
Going nuclear is Japan's invariable ambition and becoming a military
giant is its strategic goal. Back in the Second World War, Japan
pursued the development of a nuclear weapon and its use but instead it
suffered from nuclear disasters. Finding the reason for its defeat in
the war in its failure to have access to nuclear weapons, the
militarists considered nuclear weapons as an all-powerful weapons and
worked hard to have access to them.
In order to create social atmosphere and legal environment necessary
for nuclear weaponization, Japan revised "the basic law on atomic
energy" and has openly pursued nuclear weaponization under the pretext
of "national security."
At an event this year, 70 years since Hiroshima suffered from an
A-bomb, the Japanese chief executive did not mention the "three
non-nuclear principles" which he would tout for mere form's sake in the
But the Japanese right-wing elements have desperately stood against
the principles, openly crying out for "manufacturing A-bombs".
Japan's access to nuclear weapons has already become a will of the
government, not just demand of a few ultra-right elements.
Japan is capable of producing nuclear warheads in a short period as
it has fully acquired technology of manufacturing A-bombs.
Japan's going nuclear is neither a prediction nor a hypothesis but its danger is becoming a reality.
All facts prove Japan's dramatic change in its foreign security policy with nuclear weapons as a pivot.
Japan's moves for nuclear weaponization are related to the ambition
for overseas aggression and war for world domination of the descendents
of the war-happy militarists who are oblivious of the lesson of history.
The world has to heighten vigilance against Japan's moves for
nuclear weaponization that brought such a horrible disaster to humankind
in the last century. -0-
