Japanese Prime Minister gives speech on SCT
The Japanese Prime minister issued a sppech today announcing his hope that the SCT would allow Japan to enter. A clip of his speech is as follows:
and so in order to create a stable continent, the SCT must allow Japan to enter. This move will have incorporated all major Asian nations that want to enter admission into this treaty. Japan cannot hope to threaten any nation, it has no military, and its economy is badly damaged. We must move forward into the future and ensure peace and stability in Asia...
