– Successive earthquakes shook Tohoku region twice this week. A tsunami warning was issued but there was no major damage.
– It is reported that Komei Party, the junior partner of the present coalition government that is reluctant to increase Japan’s military presence, has largely agreed to establish a permanent act to dispatch Japanese Defense Force to oversea areas for the purpose of supporting, being off battlefields, other forces’ military actions, on the condition that a strict rule for its execution should be stipulated.
