Okinawa Secret Pact-II/Third-Class Politicians Only Provide the Third-Rate Policy-XII
On 9 March 2010, Foreign Minister Okada Katsuya disclosed that the Japanese government had allowed nuclear weapons to be brought onto Japanese soil under secret pacts (Japan Times). Since WWII, the LDP had ruled Japan and denied the fact that nuclear weapons were introduced into Japan, violating Japan’s three NOs nuclear policy. In 1967, Prime Minister Sato Eisaku declared Japan’s three-point non-nuclear principle of not “producing,” not possessing and not allowing the “bringing in” of nuclear weapons. For years since 1967, the Americans have demonstrated the nonsense of the three NOs nuclear policy. For instance, Ambassador Edwin O. Reischauer told Foreign minister Ohira Masayoshi that port calls or transit by U.S. ships carrying nuclear weapons did not constitute “introduction” of nuclear weapons in April 1963. Even today, many former prime ministers including Abe Shinzo and Aso Taro, are still denying the existence of the secret pact. However, on 30 March 2010, NHK interviewed former prime minister Nakasone Yasuhiro, who stated that he received the details from the bureaucrats on 14 January 1983.
