Third-Class Politicians Only Provide the Third-Rate Policy-VI
On 27 April 2009, Nakasone Hirofumi, Foreign Minister of Japan, delivered a speech at a hotel in Tokyo. “China’s strategic direction is unclear and it continues to modernize its nuclear armaments, without cutting down its nuclear weapons. It hasn’t released any information on its capabilities,” stated Nakasone (Japan Times).In his speech, Nakasone also touched on nuclear issues including having Iran, Pakistan, and Israel join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as non-nuclear states and that North Korea should return the 6-parties talks. Asking for China's nuclear reduction is new Japanese foreign policy. Unfortunately, Nakasone's idea has not been paid much attention in media inside Japan and overseas because of President Barack Obama's remark on nuclear disarmament at the Prague in early of April. One might copy one's idea, but one will never in the prize.
